Planning for a Diverse and Equitable Future is a monthly series created by The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity Committee. ACTEC considers the historical, continuing, and devastating impact of institutionalized racism, discrimination and bias of all types in our society to be a humanitarian, rather than a political issue.
