What is the role of business in addressing racial equity? What might a meaningful response to racial equity look like for business leaders – both within and outside their organization? For some, it can be challenging, and perhaps even overwhelming to determine where to start or to know what strategies have proven to be effective.
Attendees will learn about IBM’s innovative approach and leadership on this front, which was profiled by CNBC. We will be joined by IBM executives who were instrumental in developing and implementing their racial equity strategy and efforts which seek to:
- Integrate racial equity into the core business – examining the role of products, customers, management metrics, etc.
- Leverage IBM’s influence and reach to engage in public policy advocating for systemic change.
- Thoughtfully invest capital and provide expertise to ensure sustained progress both within IBM and in the communities they serve.
