The competitiveness of corporate America requires inclusion at all levels---and that culture comes from the top. That’s why BLACK ENTERPRISE has developed our list of the Top Executives in Corporate Diversity. 

This roster represents senior managers and C-suite executives charged with ensuring that major corporations have diverse representation across the board. We found top-ranked executives among the nation’s 250 largest publicly traded corporations whose primary responsibility is oversight and implementation of policies and programs that advance African Americans, Latinos, and other ethnic minorities as well as women, the disabled, and the LGBT (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender) population throughout their employee, senior management, and supplier ranks. They are also involved with expansive outreach to the diverse communities in which they serve.

Discover some of the executives we featured in our May 2014 issue who make diversity a business imperative.

In the corporate world, wearing a suit and tie, or a dress with heels, is the norm. However, techies and entrepreneurs tend to have their own style, preferring to switch things up a bit. A male geek will likely wear a blazer and some sort of graphic tee with jeans. A female techie may add color to her outfit with a pair of trendy earrings. At Black Enterprise we love how CyberSynchs founder, Amos Winbush III (pictured here), keeps his wardrobe business casual with a hint of geek flare.
