Opening Keynote: Anthony Carter, Global Chief Diversity Officer at Johnson & Johnson

Briefing: Cheryl Pearson-McNeil, Senior Vice President of Global Affairs and Government Relations at Nielsen

Pearson-McNeil offered insight into diversity within the African-American community, a group that represents more than $900 billion in buying power.
