Black Corporate Directors Conference 2017

Alex Rodriguez participated in a fireside chat with Ariel Investments president, Mellody Hobson, in Laguna Beach, California this summer.

For the past 15 years, Ariel Investments has partnered with Russell Reynolds Associates, and other co-sponsors like Deloitte and Ernst & Young, to bring together the nation’s leading black directors for the Black Corporate Directors Conference. The conference was designed to develop best practices, to encourage corporate diversity and inclusion and to encourage African-American directors to promote the civil rights agenda within their respective boardrooms.
