On the Access and Opportunity podcast, host Carla Harris, a Vice Chairman at Morgan Stanley, asks the question: How can we connect capital with communities that traditionally have been left behind? One way is by talking to the people who are already doing it. Entrepreneurs, investors, developers and activists join Carla, who taps into her 30 years of experience on Wall Street, to explore why investors are unaware of the above-market returns that exist in investing in multicultural- and women-owned businesses, and how to dispel these misconceptions and exploit this market inefficiency. Together, they show what's possible through the people who are making it possible.

Wonderful Podcast!

Thought provoking and insightful without becoming reptitvite. Carla Harris does an excellent job bringing each guest’s story to light. She asks the tough questions tactfully to elicit a deeper level of conversation than many host and moderators are willing to tackle. Hands down one of the best podcasts in my library!! 🙌🏽
