Where the Future of ESG Begins
Creating Network Ecosystems for Good
Building a more sustainable future is a complex mission that demands cooperation across sectors and cultures. Our business is built to help companies focus the power of capitalism to solve problems important to people and the planet. An important component of our technology is to designed to provide businesses a systematic way to consider the risks and rewards of building and nurturing effective ecosystems at scale.
We believe it is time to use this technology to develop focused ecosystem networks dedicated to solving problems in the following areas.
We can categorically and without reservation assert that systemic racism is a fact of life for Black Americans in the United States.
While change will not happen overnight, real change towards correcting these disparities is imperative for the country’s social and economic well-being. Beyond any moral sense of justice, the economics of self-interest demand that equality be achieved.
And finally, as a society, we cannot achieve racial equality without first creating equality of economic opportunity among all peoples.
Most people, in fact, are not chronically homeless but rather going through a crisis that led them to experience transitional homelessness. Adults and children in families make up about 30 percent of the homeless population. Transitional housing is intended to bridge the gap from a crisis — such as abuse or homelessness — into permanent housing. Typically, transitional housing is more private than other emergency homeless shelters. Transitional housing’s goal is to offer a safe space in which people can process their trauma, work on the issues that led to their homelessness, and build a supportive network that will help them in the future.
Despite enormous investment in education reform, the achievement gap between poor children and their higher-income peers persists, threatening the economic security of our nation’s most vulnerable youth - effectively barring low-income children from an adulthood that includes economic mobility and financial security. There is a clear link between sports and academic achievement in which athletes have better grades, as well as higher rates of enrollment in advanced placement courses, high school graduation and college attendance than non-athletes do. We believe that an ecosystem focused on creating Centers of Excellence in inner city athletics can make a real contribution to correcting this imbalance of opportunity for achievement.
