What does it take to reach the pinnacle of corporate America? We have designed this virtual summit to reveal how Black executives have achieved advancement at the highest levels – the C-suite and the boardroom seat – and why it matters. In an era in which a significant number of CEOs of the nation’s largest publicly traded companies have pledged to make corporate cultures more diversified, equitable and inclusive, we explore how they’re meeting the mandate to expand Black representation among senior management and corporate directorships. We also introduce you to some of the most powerful and powerful Black executives who share what it takes to make it to the top – and stay there.
In our series of informative and provocative sessions, we will examine:
• The role of Black board members in driving DEI within corporate environments
• The impact of diversified leadership on shareholder value and institutional innovation
• The process of CEO selection and succession planning
• The strategies to break barriers blocking elevation of Black professionals
Whether you’re an employee manager, vendor, consumer of shareholder, it is absolutely vital that you participate in this must-attend event.
