ACLI to Help Lead U.S. Chamber Opportunity Equality Effort
June 9, 2020 by Allison Bell
The American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) has joined an effort by big U.S. companies to reduce inequality of opportunity.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched the initiative Wednesday.
Susan Neely, the ACLI’s president, will be part of the initiative’s national steering committee. The companies participating in the effort will start by holding a national townhall meeting June 25. The participants in the townhall will include a federation of trade associations and state and local chambers of commerce.
Suzanne Clark, president of the U.S. Chamber, said in a statement that promoting greater diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace is the right thing to do, and that there’s evidence that greater diversity helps the American businesses and the American economy.
