CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion on Dec. 7 hosted a Day of Understanding, where more than 150 chief executive officers gathered for closed-door discussions on long- and short-term initiatives to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The ceo-driven coalition began in June 2017 with 175 ceo’s that included those from The Home Depot, Staples, Target Corp. and Walmart Inc. There are more than 500 companies that have signed the pledge. The idea was the brain child of Tim Ryan, the U.S. chairman of PwC.

Companies and their ceo’s who have taken on the D&I pledge include: Ascena Retail Group Inc., David Jaffe Ashley Stewart, James C. Rhee The EstéeRead More...

There is also a Guide to Sustainable Strategies that’s meant as an overview to help members create, meet and exceed their sustainability goals. The Guide also contains case studies of members on their sustainability journey. And there’s the Sustainable Strategies Toolkit that maps and frames out the sustainability priorities so brands have access to diagnostics for their use, as well as a step-by-step guide onRead More...
