Has Corporate America Made Good on its Ecomonic Equity Pledges?

In response to the brutal killing of George Floyd and the global unrest in its aftermath, corporate America has been challenged to confront systemic racism in the workplace as well as society as a whole. This session will focus on measures for Black advancement based on the series of corporate pledges to deal with past racial inequities. The initiatives include providing more opportunities for Black professionals in the workplace; increasing capital and procurement opportunities for Black-owned businesses; and ensuring corporate accountability to this renewed focus on diversity, equity and inclusion.
