#DEI


Sustainability is no longer at the fringes of business strategy; it is intrinsic to any successful business' future. We know what we need to do, and why, but the inescapable question is how. The problems we face are no longer future challenges. We are already seeing the crisis unfolding. It is now the time for action.

This year, Reuters Events: Transform USA 2021 (May 4-5) will provide the forum for leaders to come together and share how they're executing strategy that builds resilience and delivers the sustainability transition. Transform USA will guide you through the issues so that you can forge a robust and achievable roadmap to make your business clean, resilient, and just.

Join L. Simone Washington, Director of our new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) offering, as she chairs Transform USA's DEI Keynote, which will discuss what business and industry can do to ensure a more just and equal society on May 5 at 1:30 p.m. EST. The panel will also feature Dr. Ronald Copeland, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Kaiser Permanente and Amit Bouri, Chief Executive Officer, Global Impact Investment Network.
