A webcast and panel discussion will take on the trending topic of the gap in representation of African Americans and minorities in top executive ranks of U.S. corporations. “The Black C-Suite: Challenges and Opportunities,” will feature two black executives that will share experiences in their journey to the C-Suite, while the panel will discuss ideas and solutions for improving representation.
The complimentary webcast is scheduled for Thursday, July 30, 3 PM CST, and is produced by the Controllers Council, a community and platform focused on Accounting and Finance resources and training, best practices information, recognition and networking.
Panelists include Kofi Bruce, CFO of General Mills, and Jerry Raphael, CFO of Stack Overflow. Brandt Kucharski, Chief Accounting Officer at Grubhub, and Sarah Harris, General Counsel and Chair of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee at Armanino, a Top 25 CPA firm, will moderate the discussion and field questions during the webcast.
“The small percentage of Blacks and minorities that achieve the highest executive positions is well documented,” states Lindy Antonelli, Controllers Council Board Chair. “Our lively discussion will share some of the challenges experienced by our panelists, and importantly identify and debate how to address problems and achieve positive change now and in the future."
