Battling Systemic Racism: How Boards Can Have a Positive Impact - Part 3

Inside America’s Boardrooms

In Part 3 of our series on systemic racism, we discuss the poor representation of African American/Black professionals in the boardroom and C-Suite—and what board members can do to make a positive impact on improving board diversity.

In this episode, Rose McKinney-James, Board Member with MGM Resorts International and Toyota Financial Savings Bank, and John W. Rogers Jr., Board Member with Nike, McDonald’s, and The NY Times, Co-founder of the Black Corporate Directors Conference, paint the current landscape and offer solutions:

  • What discussions are McKinney-James and Rogers having in their own boardrooms?
  • What should boards be doing – now and in the future – to change the status quo?
