Bridge Interactive: Brokers in Atlanta now have access to streamlined listing creation and data management tools through the newly launched Bridge Interactive® Listing Input, now live in the market.

Directors & Boards Top corporate leaders can help bolster diversity in the boardroom by encouraging executives on their team to seek out new opportunities for board service when appropriate. That’s just one of many ways for companies to start preparing the next generation of board members. Companies must also consider the advantages that a broader range of perspectives provides.

Fortune 250 companies indicate that diversity in the board room – including skill sets, backgrounds, gender, age and career trajectories – definitely matters. A report from Russell Reynolds Associates found that, “diversity of perspective leads to more innovation, better risk management, and stronger connections with customers, employees and business partners.”

Medium At Living Cities, we’re working to get dramatically better results for low-income people faster, particularly people of color. To do this work, we must be clear that racism isn’t limited to Tiki torches and small-town violence. There are both historical and contemporary policies and practices that continue to have disparate effects on people of color throughout their lives. From something as quotidian as commuting times to larger systemic barriers and implicit bias, it is structural racism and White supremacy that have created and continue to create inequities in health, housing, education and beyond. For many people of color, these barriers appear in their day-to-day lives.
