The Black Economic Alliance Foundation (BEA Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) organization that researches, studies, uses, and shares data to help guide organizations in their cross-sector work designed to promote economic mobility and prosperity for Black Americans. The BEA Foundation collaborates with leaders in the nonprofit, private, and public sectors to produce, research, and analyze data that identify structural barriers to economic and racial equity, and then assist in recommending pragmatic solutions to rectify the consequences of these barriers. The Foundation's primary areas of focus include promoting workforce development, expanding access to capital and wealth for Black individuals and businesses, protecting safety net programs that enhance wages for workers, addressing explicit and implicit bias, increasing racial representation, and building access to opportunities in Black communities. In addition to data production, the BEA Foundation hosts a forum and speaker series, partners with major corporations such as Goldman Sachs to generate pathways to economic justice, and is developing a program to train and place one million Black workers in jobs over the next ten years.
