150 CEOs Support Action in the Workplace on Diversity and Inclusion

While President Trump stirs up a neo-Know Nothing ruckus about the rights of NFL players to protest on the field, business has been quietly doing just about the opposite. CEO in Action for Diversity and Inclusion™ is an initiative by over 150 CEOs to introduce programs about those subjects within the workplace.
