Former Starbucks executive Rosalind “Roz” Brewer became the CEO of Walgreens on Monday, making her the only Black woman currently serving as the head of a Fortune 500 company. Only four Black people are currently Fortune 500 CEOs, including Brewer. “Diversity at the top drives diversity throughout the corporation,” said Michael C. Hyter, president and CEO of the Executive Leadership Council, a nonprofit that works to increase the number of Black C-suite and boardroom executives.⁠

  1. She’s the CEO cause of her skills, not cause of her skin color and that’s the important part y’all forgot to mention. Cnn loves to make everything about race smh

  2. God Bless Capitalism. Only in Capitalist societies can we see POC and women strive to be whatever they want to be despite the many barriers presented before us.

  3. If someone robbed and looted her business and she were against it, would that be racist, also she’s clearly qualified. Is not about skin color.

  4. Just to be clear, I’m not liking this post cuz she’s the only black woman as a head of Fortune 500 but the fact that it’s worth celebrating because she probably went through a lot. We have a LONGGG way to go before more POC hold leadership positions but it’s a start. Should have started earlier but still a start and I’m all about that ❤️
