VIRTUAL: Private Sector Responsibility on Race, Equity, and Inclusion - Part 1

Samuel C. Scott III, Board of Directors Cochair, Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Moderated by Ivo H. Daalder.

CEOs, heads of office, and other select C-suite executives from partner companies are invited to participate in a new series of exclusive roundtable discussions that will address the private sector’s role in combating racism. This three-part series will address the urgency and responsibility facing companies to expand on and build out diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. Council board cochair and former Ingredion CEO Samuel C. Scott III will kick off the series with a fireside chat on September 15 to talk about his personal and professional experiences, lessons learned, and advice for the next generation. Each program will include active participation and discussion with peer senior executives.

This series will be conducted alongside our Corporate Leadership Breakfast series. Cohosted by Council President Ivo H. Daalder and Samuel C. Scott III, these executives-only meetings provide an opportunity for business leaders to participate in timely, business-relevant global policy discussions and hear directly from the Council’s bench of experts. They also provide a platform to showcase executive leadership in a room of peers, customers, service providers, and clients. From NAFTA to national security, immigration to climate change – insights from these discussions offer companies the competitive edge they need to thrive in an increasingly global economy.
