Anti-Racism and Racial Justice

Business+Impact stands in solidarity with our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities, and the Ross School of Business AABA in their call to action to #StopAsianHate and #StopAAPIHate. We condemn all acts of hate, racial violence, xenophobia, and misogyny, including recent anti-Asian and anti-Black violence. At Business + Impact, we are committed to the work of dismantling the structures of systemic racism, achieving racial justice in America, and building an equitable and sustainable future for all. Below are links to learn more and find out how you can support the APPI community.

Business+Impact also recognizes the pain and injustice of recent acts of police violence against people of color, namely Daunte Write and Adam Toledo, especially within the context of the ongoing Derek Chauvin trial. We stand against all systemic racism, selective enforcement, and police brutality against Black and brown people, and we support the Black Lives Matter movement.
