    Pivotal moments

    IBM created its supplier diversity program, before the existence of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA).


    IBM CEO Ginni Rometty and 100 other CEOs signed a letter sent by the Coalition for the American Dream, urging lawmakers to pass legislation protecting Dreamers.


    IBM published a statement applauding the U.S. Supreme Court decision about DACA program and urging the congress to pass a bipartisan legislative solution to Dreamers situation, signed by SVP and CHRO, Diane Gherson.
