Added James DuBose, head of Fox Soul: “I said from day one that Fox Soul was about more than just streaming content. After the initial discussion with Black Enterprise, it became crystal clear that we had a shared vision to entertain, educate and inspire our culture.”
The town hall series is sponsored by the Executive Leadership Council (ELC), a global organization focused on developing Black corporate C-suite and board leaders.
The first program titled “One Year After George Floyd: Has Corporate America Made Good on its Economic Equity Pledges?” premiered on Thursday, June 10.
