Equitable Underwriting Community of Action
Equitable Underwriting Community of Action is a 6-month virtual cohort program for banks and financial lending institutions to adopt equitable underwriting practices at their institution and demonstrate increasing access to debt financing to Black business owners. Our curriculum partner, Underwriting for Racial Justice, convened by Beneficial State Foundation, will serve to accelerate progress towards equitable practices that can better meet the needs of Black businesses.
The Equitable Underwriting Community of Action cohort is comprised of financial lending organizations and institutions that touch nearly every region of the United States. The selected cohort members will play a key role in this effort, working to raise awareness and drive meaningful change.
