Building a More Equitable and Supportive Corporate Community for Black Talent

Featured Image

Let’s face it: It’s autumn 2021, and we’re still grappling with a pandemic that has now lasted a year and a half. And while we navigate the ongoing health care crisis, we’re still seeking systemic solutions to the societal inequities that COVID-19 and our country’s reckoning with racial injustice have thrown into stark relief. 

At our annual Horizons summit in June, we urged attendees to embrace the lessons of 2020 and join together to build a future rooted in equity and opportunity for all workers and learners.

Now as we look toward Horizons 2022, we’re amplifying some of the most powerful conversations from Horizons 2021 in a new podcast series called, yes, “Horizons.”

Our first episode, “Building a More Equitable and Supportive Corporate Community for Black Talent,” meets this moment with insights into corporate responsibilities and actions.

 

Available now, the episode features highlights of the Horizons appearances of two leaders who are working to diversify the corporate workforce. Here’s a preview: 

  • Dalila Wilson-Scott, executive vice president and chief diversity officer at Comcast, talks personally about devoting her career to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in corporate America. She offers a look at how we can all work together and move forward to achieve that goal. 
  • Maurice Jones, the CEO of OneTen, a coalition of leading executives who have joined together to reskill, hire, and advance 1 million Black Americans over the next 10 years, reflects on what the corporate community is doing to support Black talent.  

Plug in your headphones, listen to conversations that you might have missed, and remind yourself of what it’s going to take to build a future that works.
