"By the turn of the millennium, many baby boomers were heading towards retirement as younger professionals took their place in the workforce. America's advancements come from intrepid engineers and technologists, from business executives bold enough to take chances."
The CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ aims to rally the business community to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace by working across organizations and sectors. It outlines three commitments that CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ will implement within their workplaces to cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed and employees feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion. The CEOs recognize that these three commitments are not the complete answer, but they believe they are important, concrete steps toward building more diverse and inclusive workplaces.
