DEI Partners in Success: Samsung Hosts the Congressional Black Caucus
At Samsung, our commitment to communities is one that extends to those decision-makers who walk the streets of our nation’s capital. As a catalyst in a bipartisan approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion we were pleased to host the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) at our Samsung DC event space for the second annual year. This is a significant and important partnership for Samsung, highlighting our drive to deliver positive social change, and impact in communities across the U.S.
Our partnership with the CBC comes to life during the Annual Legislative Conference of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, where influential figures celebrated the 30th anniversary of Congressman James Clyburn’s election. This year, as part of CBC festivities, Samsung was once again honored to host Congressman Jim Clyburn’s annual Palmetto Reception on Thursday, September 19.
The event counted the attendance of U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Katherine Tai, Lt. Governor Austin Davis of Pennsylvania, Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist of Michigan, Rep. Dwight Evans (D-PA), House Minority Whip, Representative Katherine Clark (D-MA), Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE), Representative Lauren Underwood, (D-IL) and Representative Shontel Brown (D-OH) among a host of other state and local government officials. Samsung’s Executive Vice President, Mark Lippert had the distinct honor of introducing the Congressman and also thanked other partners who helped make the event possible, including Duke Energy, Philip Morris International, Starbucks, McDonald’s, and industry partner, ITI.
