The following session is from DiversityInc’s fourth annual Women of Color and Their Allies event, held Oct. 21, 2021. This year’s theme was “Sustaining Workforce Positions for Women of Color.” Throughout the day, panels consisting of researchers, thought leaders and executives shared their insights and strategies for helping women of color overcome common workplace barriers and spotlight allies working to sustain their positions within the workforce.
While Black men and women share some of the same plights, a certain amount of privilege comes with being a male. In this very important session, we will hear from Black male executives committed to advocating and mentoring women of color.
Panelists for the session included Ken Bouyer, Americas Director of Inclusiveness Recruiting at EY (a DiversityInc Hall of Fame Company); Clint Wallace, Senior Vice President of Human Relations at Sanofi U.S. (No. 27 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2021); and Keith R. Wyche, Vice President of Community Engagement & Support at Walmart (No. 22 in 2021). Colton Palmer, Senior Partnership Manager at DiversityInc, moderated the session.
