Diverse by Design Symposium in one week
Fifth Third Bank, in collaboration with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and Agenda 360, is pleased to host the Diverse by Design: 2015 Leadership Symposium next Tuesday, October 27 at the Hyatt Regency downtown.
Among many highlights of the event will be Steve Pemberton’s keynote address, From Corrective Action to Competitive Advantage: How Diversity is Reshaping Our World. Pemberton is Chief Diversity Officer for Walgreens and author of A Chance in the World: An Orphan Boy, A Mysterious Past, and How He Found a Place Called Home.
Overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds, Pemberton has gone from being a forgotten ward of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to becoming a trailblazing Divisional Vice President at Walgreens and the first Chief Diversity Officer for the 113 year old company. Prior to that, he made history as the first Chief Diversity Officer and Vice-President of Diversity and Inclusion for an Internet start-up while at Monster.com.
“Diversity has evolved from ‘why do we have to do this” to ‘how do we do it best,’” said Pemberton. “There’s now solid evidence that businesses that embrace inclusion have better performance and stronger bottom lines. As companies develop new markets in the U.S. and around the globe, a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace are critical to success.”
