NationSwell is proud to announce a new partnership with JUST Capital, a non-profit organization whose data-driven tools, rankings, and indexes help companies improve how they serve not just their shareholders, but all their stakeholders — including workers, customers, communities, and the environment.
“JUST Capital’s impartial company rankings, open-sourced methodology, and collaborative initiatives have broken new ground in the movement toward stakeholder capitalism,” Katie Hunt-Morr, Managing Director of the NationSwell Council, said. “We are excited to add the force of NationSwell’s cross-sector community of impact-driven leaders to their work.”
“We know from having surveyed over 120,000 Americans since 2015 that people want companies to pay a fair and living wage, provide good benefits, and create equal opportunity for advancement,” said Michelle Mullineaux, JUST Capital’s Chief Marketing and Communications Officer. “We’re thrilled to work more closely with NationSwell’s community of change-makers to accelerate action around these critical issues.”
Members of the NationSwell Community can expect to see stories in support of JUST Capital’s human-centered impact across all of our channels, which include our member-exclusive newsletters for Council and Institutional Members, our public facing social channels, and journalist-led editorial stories of JUST Capital’s Impact on NationSwell’s storytelling platforms.
NationSwell will begin by supporting the Worker Financial Wellness Initiative, which was created by JUST Capital and PayPal with support from the Financial Health Network and Good Jobs Institute to encourage companies to make their workers’ financial security and health a C-suite and investor priority. The initiative elevates the necessity of worker financial well-being as business leaders consider solutions to shape an equitable and inclusive recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and take action to advance racial equity. The first cohort of companies to join the initiative includes industry leaders like Chipotle, Chobani, Even, Prudential Financial, and Verizon, a NationSwell Institutional Member.
