PwC's Tim Ryan wants every Fortune 1000 CEO to sign his corporate diversity pledge

    By: Kelsey Vuillemot on Nov 13, 2017

    Grace Donnelly writes, "When he began reaching out to CEOs about coming together to address corporate diversity, PwC’s Tim Ryan expected 25 to 40 to sign the pledge. He ended up with more than 150 CEOs when the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion launched in June — through no small effort of his own — and by November 330 had joined the initiative.

    Now he wants every Fortune 1000 CEO involved in the group’s efforts.

    At an event in midtown Manhattan last week, 70 of the CEOs involved gathered for a closed door discussion of long and short term goals and remarks from CNN‘s Van Jones and Fortune’s Ellen McGirt. Before the business leaders left, Ryan called on each of them to leverage their networks to bring ten CEOs on board.

    Though corporate America has now been talking about improving diversity in its ranks for decades and this initiative is still very new, Ryan said he’s never seen this much momentum."
