About Us

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.

Rethinking Impact

Welcome back for Season 3 of Access & Opportunity. This season, we're exploring how influential investors from across various pools of capital are helping women and multicultural-led businesses to gain access to capital.
