Great news for the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion initiative as nearly 100 new CEOs have taken the pledge to support diversity within their corporations. Only a month after 175 executives signed on, the number is growing closer to 300. The companies involved span all 50 states and over 70 industries.
According to a Press Release “The collective of more than 270 signatories have shared almost 250 actions across a variety of categories—from supplier diversity and succession planning to mentorship and recruitment—exchanging learning opportunities and creating collaborative conversations via the initiative’s unified hub, CEOAction.com. Continuing this momentum, the signatories will convene at a Summit in November to discuss longer-term growth strategies that will advance the agenda.” In addition a recent survey showed that 85% believe diversity fosters innovation.
