ECNY 2022 DEI Summary Report
The Economic Club of New York has now completed a third year of conversations focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion. This series of conversations would not have been possible without the support of our corporate partners: BlackRock, Bloomberg, MasterCard, PayPal, S&P Global and Taconic Capital.
Through these many and varied conversations, the series sought to highlight the structural workings of inequity in business and society. Our speakers see inequity not merely as a concept, but as something deeply braided into the argot of our society. Uniformly, they suggested to address its consequences we must advance efforts to embrace diversity at all levels of society. Some speakers shared about ongoing efforts to diversify their boards and workforce, while others are already seeing demographic trends tending toward visions of genuine inclusivity.
The 2022 ECNY Innovation and Social Impact Challenge
To honor the Club’s 115th anniversary, The Economic Club of New York launched the Innovation and Social Impact Challenge, which has contributed to the creation of our research division and aligns with the Club’s mission to be a catalyst for thought and innovation and leverages our platforms to introduce content into the mainstream business and economic communities. These ideas or concepts can benefit not just New York or the U.S., but the broader community and humankind.
The three themes of the 2022 Challenge were: Artificial Intelligence, Climate Change and/or Corporate Governance. This Challenge was presented to our Class of 2022 Fellows. The winners were:
1st Place: “Supply Chain Stress Testing at Macro Level”
2nd Place Tie: “Unleashing the Power of Climate Markets Will Drive Privacy ESG Risks: Is Your Board
Seeing the Iceberg?”
2nd Place Tie: “RealOne, Building Trust with Technology."
