Ben & Jerry’s CEO Matthew McCarthy has been clear that “business should be held accountable to setting very specific targets” around “racial equity in their organizations”. In this conversation, we explore Ben and Jerry’s racial equity journey and how they have held themselves to account; the company’s founding principle of “linked prosperity” and how capitalism should evolve; and how other business leaders can start taking a more active stand on social issues, to the benefit of society and the bottom line.
