There is no shortage of Black talent in Corporate America, but there is a systemic failure to promote and retain them in leadership roles. At a time when businesses have renewed their commitments to racial justice, are they upholding their promises to build supportive environments where Black leaders can grow and thrive? Who are the decision makers, change agents, and allies creating space for the next generation of Black leaders to advance? And how are Black leaders charting their own paths forward?
