ADVISORY: Coca-Cola, Microsoft, and AT&T to Discuss Benefits of Workforce Diversity

Washington, D.C. — On Thursday, July 12, representatives from Coca-Cola, Microsoft, and AT&T will join the Center for American Progress to discuss corporate citizenship and the role of the private sector in supporting an inclusive workforce. We will discuss the importance of preparing our future workforce to meet the future needs of our economy and outline how corporate initiatives to strengthen workplace diversity are critical to recruiting and retaining the best and the brightest, and how doing so is ultimately better for the bottom line.

As our nation becomes more diverse, so too does our workforce. Time and again, diversity has proven a core business strategy that helps produce greater efficiencies, more innovation, and better effectiveness. In an increasingly competitive market for talent, businesses that embrace diversity in the workplace reap significant economic benefits from attracting a qualified workforce. Inclusive workplaces foster greater job performance and productivity and are better able to relate to a diverse group of consumers.


Featured panelists:

Steve Bucherati, Chief Diversity Officer, The Coca-Cola Company
Greg McCurdy, Senior Policy Counsel, Microsoft Corporation
Debbie Storey, SVP Talent Development and Chief Diversity Officer, AT&T
