C-Sweet produced a three part series in response to the national outcry over racial injustice.
In August we discussed Racial Relations in the Workplace with a fireplace chat featuring diversity expert Dr. Tana Session and Carolyn Sims, Sr. Advisor, Policy Engagement with Southern California Edison.
In September we showcased leading Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) experts including Renee Brown, former Senior Vice President & Chief of Basketball Operations and Player Relations for the WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) and Heide Gardner, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer for Interpublic Group (IPG) moderated by Patricia Hinerman, CISO for IPG.

“A boy walking along a beach. There had just been a storm, and starfish had been scattered along the sands. The boy knew the fish would die, so he began to fling the fish to the sea. But every time he threw a starfish, another would wash ashore.
An old man happened along and saw what the child was doing. He called out, 'Boy, what are you doing?' 'Saving the starfish!' replied the boy. 'But your attempts are useless, child! Every time you save one, another one returns, often the same one! You can't save them all, so why bother trying? Why does it matter, anyway?' called the old man.
The boy thought about this for a while, a starfish in his hand; he answered, 'Well, it matters to this one.' And then he flung the starfish into the welcoming sea.”
― Loren Eiseley, The Star Thrower
Every act of kindness counts, no matter how small.
You can make a difference. We can make a difference together.
C-Sweet is a national organization dedicated to women working with each other at the highest levels. Women prospering in the workforce, succeeding as entrepreneurs, and promoting women’s economic empowerment is our mission. We want women to have a seat at the table where business is done.
C-Sweet’s focus and goal is women’s economic empowerment. Our intent is to break through barriers to career and financial success. We believe that if executive women are given the venue and opportunity to know each other, they will then make a concerted effort do business and promote each other. Ensuring women’s economic development at the C level raises standards for all.
