At the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, we recognize that advancing racial equity exerts a powerful positive influence on the lives and futures of children.
Children who grow up in a society where their health, education, and well-being are considered valuable and important have higher achievement in school and more opportunities for employment and financial stability as adults. And just as advancing racial equity has a profound positive effect on children and their families, it also has tremendous influence on the potential for profound economic growth. Inequities hold our society back, and a growing number of leaders in both the public and private sectors
recognize that fact. Investors, employers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and others have a stake in creating more equitable communities.
