Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion are guiding principles of corporate social responsibility and the triple-bottom-line, and for 30 years VBSR has worked to advance these principles through organizational change and public policy. We also recognize that when it comes to anti-racism, VBSR’s long journey of self-inquiry, advocacy, and structural change is just beginning.

The following resources are intended to support VBSR members and the Vermont business community in their efforts to dismantle systems of white supremacy and grow Vermont’s economy through justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI). Please contact Membership Manager, Toby Aronson (tobya@vbsr.org) if you have suggestions for resources to add.

“As a business leader, you have incredible influence, which is why it’s so important you be leaders in your community on racial equity. This is your moment to act.”
