How do CEOs create true inclusive and fair corporate cultures? What is the real impact of chief diversity officers in corporate America? How significant is white allyship in ensuring the embrace of companywide DEI mandates at all levels?

Attend our Summit to gain the answer to these questions–and more!


In the second part of our highly acclaimed BLACK ENTERPRISE Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit, we have assembled a cadre of high-powered executives and top thought leaders to discuss African American representation and participation in corporate renewal a year after the emergence of COVID-19 and institutional focus on racial equity in the aftermath of the George Floyd tragedy.

One part progress report, one-part strategic plan, one part call to action, this event has been designed to meet the urgency of our times. We will share where Black executives stand as it relates to corporate mobility and whether Black entrepreneurs are gaining a larger slice of the corporate procurement pie. We offer instruction on how Black professionals can advance in today’s environment by navigating structural racism and corporate politics, building beneficial business networks and gaining recognition for peak performance.

At DEI Summit 2, we reveal:
• How diversity, equity & inclusion can be recognized as a business priority
• Developing the best approaches to retain Black talent and place them on the management track
• How Black executives can stop unconscious bias, microaggressions, and other such discriminatory behaviors from derailing careers
• How Black business leaders must compel corporate America to make good on its racial equity pledges
• The importance of collective corporate leadership in bringing about lasting social change

Register NOW to discover how you can make DEI work for you and succeed in the evolving business landscape.
