Our vision of sustainable business should encompass diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), yet inside companies, sustainability and DEI are often led by two separate teams with two distinct agendas. The many expressions of support for racial justice from companies following the murder of George Floyd made clear the need for more sustained action over time, but also revealed the disconnect that exists inside companies among multiple social, economic, and human rights topics. How can companies take more strategic and integrated approaches that bring together disparate elements of sustainable business? How can DEI, sustainability, human rights, and other teams work more closely together on a shared, urgent, and ambitious agenda?
