Since our founding, we here at Bridgewater have consistently prided ourselves on fulfilling the ideals of Minority Business Enterprise leadership and heeding the responsibility of good corporate citizenship to improve our world. We have especially focused on improving issues related to racial equities.
Our President and CEO Ronald E. Hall recently had a compelling conversation with the business community in Oxford, Alabama on race, equality, as well as Bridgewater’s history in creating change on these issues.
Hall noted racial equality programs have directly affected his life because General Motors was the first automaker to have a supplier diversity program, and his company was founded explicitly out of that desire to see minority firms grow in the industry.
The work his father and others did continues to have an impact, and Hall said he’s been accepting every invitation he’s gotten to talk about racial equality.
