Corporate America's moment of truth on racism

Featuring Michael Carter, RBC Capital Markets' Global Head of Technology Investment Banking

 

 

 

Ongoing protests against racism and violence towards Black communities have hit a boiling point, forcing companies everywhere to re-examine their practices and histories. In addition to questions about police practices and systemic racism across all parts of society, corporate America is being challenged anew on its own record. Black executives hold only 3% of leadership roles in U.S. companies, and only 2% of venture capital dollars goes to African American entrepreneurs. What more can the private sector do? Michael Carter, RBC Capital Markets' Global Head of Technology Investment Banking and a member of the Washington-based Executive Leadership Council, shares his perspective on how companies can confront racism.

 

The 10-Minute Take podcast provides insights from RBC economists and market experts on events unfolding around the globe.
