With racial tensions running high across the U.S., what can board directors do to encourage diversity and prioritize inclusion? In this four-part Inside America’s Boardrooms series, we explore issues of racism and social justice through the lens of three communities: Asian/Pacific, Hispanic/Latino and African American/Black.
In Part 3 of our series, Rose McKinney-James, Board Member with MGM Resorts International and Toyota Financial Savings Bank, and John W. Rogers Jr., Board Member with Nike, McDonald’s, and The NY Times, Co-founder of the Black Corporate Directors Conference, offer solutions for better achieving better diversity and inclusion of African American/Black directors.
