When it comes to racial equity, some Fortune 1000 companies are walking the walk

Just one-third of Fortune 1000 companies made public statements on racial equity between George Floyd’s killing in May and the end of October. Of the companies that spoke out, over 90 percent followed up with a commitment to promote equity, whether inside the organization or beyond it.

In the period between May 25 – Oct 31, 2020, since the George Floyd protests, at least 32% of the top 1,000 US companies have made statements and followed up with external (22%) or internal (18%) commitments in support of reducing racial disparities.
