Texas Diversity Council is Proud to Announce the 2017 Top 10 Distinguished Leaders for Diversity in Texas

SOURCE: National Diversity Council


HOUSTON, March 21, 2017 /3BL Media/ – The Texas Diversity Council is proud to announce the 2017 Top 10 Chief Executive Officers in Houston and Dallas, TX. Individuals selected for this distinguished award demonstrate undeniable leadership ability and strong commitment to diversity and inclusion within their organizations.

“The Distinguished Leaders for Diversity Award honors a group of chief executives of the highest caliber,” said Dennis Kennedy, Founder and Chairman of the National Diversity Council. “Our team takes great pride in honoring this group of accomplished men and women that continue to make the pursuit for a more inclusive workplace a priority.”

Commitment to diversity begins at the top. It is a value taken up by leadership and instilled through the organization as a targeted effort to affect change. The National Diversity Council began as a mission-driven organization built from the beginning to advocate for the benefits of diversity in the corporate workplace. We are proud to see leaders in multiple fields – retail, aviation, technology, oil & gas and more – take up that mission for their own. For these leaders, it is a personal responsibility to break down the institutional barriers that have made diversity and inclusion a long, hard struggle.
