It has been roughly two years since corporate America made its series of pledges to address systemic racism.

As a result, a myriad of major corporations—individually and collectively—vowed to provide access and resources to African Americans so they could realize career mobility on all fronts and gain business-building procurement opportunities.

So, is the promise to level the playing field being fulfilled?

We explore the status of these commitments—and more—as part of our all-new BLACK ENTERPRISE Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit 2022. We have brought together a group of high-powered executives and top thought leaders to discuss African American representation and participation at all levels of corporate America.

In an event that represents our annual progress report, we gauge how major companies have cultivated DEI as one of their leading business priorities, including developing new strategies to accelerate the recruitment, retention, and elevation of Black talent and expansion of business diversity. In this exclusive, must-attend summit, we also provide an insider’s view on how Black professionals navigate institutional racism, build expansive career networks, and position themselves for sponsorship.

Join our summit to explore the following topics:

  • How chief diversity officers infuse DEI as a critical part of corporate cultures
  • Have business leaders effectively implemented the next stages of corporate equity commitments?
  • How employee resource groups, or ERGs, help facilitate real opportunities for Black executives
  • Has white allyship been effective in advancing Black talent?

Register NOW to discover how you can make DEI work for you to succeed in today’s fast-paced, complex business environment.
