Papa John’s Rob Lynch Joins Governing Committee for CEO Action for Racial Equity
Embraces opportunities to advance racial equity through public policy
Earlier this week, CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ (CEO Action), the largest CEO‐driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the workplace, unveiled this social justice fellowship to advance racial equality and announced Lynch’s involvement.
“I am thrilled to be on the governing committee for CEO Action for Racial Equity,” said
Through CEO Action for Racial Equity, nearly 250 fellows, representing more than 100 CEO Action signatory organizations, work together to identify, develop and promote scalable and sustainable public policies and corporate engagement strategies that will address systemic racism, social injustice, and improve societal well-being. Fellows will focus their efforts on four key areas of societal well‐being: education, healthcare, public safety and economic empowerment. Additional fellows will join as the program gets underway.
“CEO Action has always been driven by the belief that when businesses work collectively to drive progress, we can truly harness lasting change,” said
Papa John’s is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. To learn more about Papa John’s other recent initiatives, please visit www.papajohns.com.
