During the event, The Executive Leadership Council (ELC) made the business case for diversity and inclusion to corporate leaders, in particular that investing in diverse senior leadership teams, including African Americans, leads to greater innovation, profitability and success for corporations.

“Diversity of thought is critical to ongoing innovation and success of global business,” said Bernard J. Tyson, ELC Board Chair and President and Chief Operating Officer of Kaiser Permanente. “It’s no secret that diverse teams increase shareholder value by bringing unique perspectives and diverse solutions to deliver bottom-line value. Our role as ELC members is to realize the important role we have as corporate executives to help CEOs and other leaders understand that African-American and other diverse leaders help build an environment of inclusion, where every perspective is value-add to the organization.”
