For deciding what to get for Father's Day, I wanted to support the #BlackLivesMatter movement by supporting Black entrepreneurs. As I began to do more research, I started looking into diversity and learned there are only 4 Black CEO's that are leading Fortune 500 companies. The companies are Lowe's, Tapestry, Merck & Co and TIAA. As someone in Corporate America, I definitely notice a lack of diversity in leadership roles, and am hopeful they become diversified in this decade. So.... for this year's Father's Day gift ideas, I decided to promote products of Black entrepreneurs and CEO's!
