Forces for Good

Jan 10 2023 • 31 mins

Our current economic system is built on a history of injustice, inequity, violence, and oppression. But businesses do have options to build more inclusive workplaces. On the show, we speak with businesses (both large and small) that are attempting to disrupt legacies of oppression.  In this episode we answer:

  • What can companies do to dismantle these conditions of violence and oppression in their business practices?
  • How can business standards drive our economy towards a system that is more equitable, inclusive, and just?
  • What is the significance of SDG10, Reduced Inequalities, in working towards a just and anti-racist world for all workers?
