Corporate Equity Center Welcome



Founded in 1991, the National Civil Rights Museum honors and preserves the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., chronicling the American Civil Rights Movement, and serving as a catalyst to inspire action and create positive social change.
The Corporate Equity Center at the National Civil Rights Museum promotes corporate social responsibility and equity through the dynamic use of the museum’s historical knowledge and assets. We deliver strategic programming that is designed to transform corporate environments, providing individuals with a sense of psychological safety, value, and the ability to thrive regardless of their background or identity.

The Corporate Equity Center houses two signature professional development offerings,
The C-Suite Initiative and Unpacking Racism for Action. Through a thorough historical, psychological, and analytical assessment of the barriers and limitations that negatively impact the advancement of black, indigenous, people of color in senior leadership and C-Suite positions, the C-Suite Initiative arms leaders with the tools needed to transform organizational structures, policies, procedures, and culture for greater effectiveness and equitable outcomes. The Unpacking Racism for Action program empowers organizational leaders, career professionals, and community members to become agents for change in the workplace, their community, and their personal lives by confronting issues of racism and advocating for racial equity.

At the National Civil Rights Museum, we believe that individuals and organizations play a pivotal role in shaping a more just and equitable society. I invite you to embark on this journey with us as we explore innovative strategies and best practices to drive positive change throughout the corporate sector and our respective communities.
