The W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s report highlighting the business case for racial equity stresses the importance of racial equity as both an imperative for social justice and a strategy for Michigan’s economic development and growth.

Maximizing human potential and economic contributions of people of color requires the elimination of disparities and opportunity differentials. The potential economic and social gains are significant. By 2050, 40% of the workforce and consumers in Michigan will be people of color. Michigan stands to realize a $92 billion gain in economic output by closing the racial equity gap.

Centered on domains of opportunity, the report identifies the current challenges and identifies solutions in the follow areas that strongly influence life outcomes: Housing, Education, Health, Criminal Justice, Employment and Entrepreneurship.
