About this Episode

We're focused again on Opportunity Zones--this time with Lane Jost. Lane is an expert in both corporate social responsibility and corporate sustainability, having held leadership roles over the last 10 years in the consulting, financial services and food service sectors. He currently serves as part of PwC’s national Responsible Business Leadership team, helping the firm and its clients leverage human capital capacity to drive social and environmental impact. This is the first of two-parts, as we zero in on Opportunity Zones. Plus, we discuss redlining--the systematic denial of services in racially diverse neighborhoods and communities.
