We're pleased and excited to invite you to participate in a very important conversation about race with our US Chairman and Senior Partner Bob Moritz and Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments (and one of TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” in 2015).
Mellody’s profound TED Talk “Color blind or color brave?” has inspired individuals to take a stand, show courage and be bold…to no longer be “color blind” but “color brave.” She can inspire all of us to talk more openly about the role race plays in our broader diversity initiatives, develop relationships with those who may look different than us and work together to strengthen our communities. Since Mellody took to the TED stage last year, her presentation has been viewed more than one million times and she’s generated significant media interest with coverage in Fortune, Essence, Huffington Post and Vanity Fair.
Bob will interview Mellody live at PwC’s New York headquarters to hear what prompted her to do the TED Talk, and why conversations on the topic of race will benefit us personally, professionally and for society as a whole. It's going to be a thought-provoking conversation that will challenge conventional thinking and broaden our perspectives.
