Q: What is a racial Equity audit?

 A racial equity audit is an independent analysis of a company’s business practices in an effort to identify and ferret out practices that may have a discriminatory effect (in our case specifically as it relates to Black Americans). Such an audit could also evaluate a company’s current efforts or efforts in response to the events in the summer of 2020.
