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. The program’s commitment is the “realization that addressing diversity and inclusion is not a competitive issue, but a societal issue,” and that “businesses have the opportunity—and the responsibility—to play a meaningful role in such an important societal issue.” See what 150 corporations and organizations are doing to foster effective action toward advancing the debate—and the issues.
