WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The Executive Leadership Council (ELC) today released an open letter ahead of the Martin Luther King Holiday weekend calling on Corporate America to remain steadfast in its diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) efforts and to continue fighting to end the “intolerance, hatred, systemic racism, gender inequality, and discrimination” which still exists.
“On this day, let us remember that his call to action continues. His vision for a better, transformed America, free of hatred, withering injustice, and inequality can become our reality. This America, where inclusion is seen as the fabric that weaves together freedom, justice, and equality, leading to exceptional business and community outcomes, is what The Executive Leadership Council believes is possible. It is at the core of our mission, our values, and our work for the past 38 years. And we will continue to be a leader, a voice, an advocate, and a partner in supporting the important work of DE&I.”
