The CEO action for diversity and inclusion turns two

    Ellen McGirt writes, “It’s been one year since the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion launched, the largest ever cross-industry commitment to advance diversity in the workplace.

    “Some days it feels like ten years,” laughs Tim Ryan, the U.S. chairman of PwC.

    Ryan first proposed the idea in 2016, after a series of police shootings compelled the company to engage in serious internal dialog about race in America. The results of the candid convenings were eye-opening for Ryan and his executive team – while some people felt afraid outside the firm, plenty of people also felt invisible inside. That experience encouraged Ryan to connect with a like-minded group of CEOs, many of whom were competitors, to look for solutions at scale.”
