Senior level executives who currently or recently have had instrumental leadership roles during expatriate assignments at Fortune 500 and equivalent companies share their experiences and the value of leading global initiatives in order to remain competitive in today's international business environment. The discussion is one of several that addresses "The International Connection…the New Black America," the theme of the Executive Leadership Council's 2014 Summer General Membership Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia on June 5 – 7.

The Executive Leadership Council (ELC) is the pre-eminent membership organization committed to increasing the number of global black executives in C-Suites, on corporate boards and in global enterprises. The organization offers programs for members and other high potential professionals and executives in various stages of their career lifecycles focused on developing and supporting a robust pipeline of global, black executives. The membership, comprised of more than 500 current and former black CEOs, board members and senior executives at Fortune 500 and equivalent companies, convenes twice a year to discuss issues pertaining to today's corporate landscape, and how to enhance shareholder value at their own organizations by transforming global enterprises into models of inclusive, executive leadership.

The members specifically selected Atlanta as the site of this summer's international business-focused meeting because of Atlanta's position as a key commercial gateway and a strategic conduit of international business development. The ELC believes in the business proposition that when diversity leads, corporate America and global enterprises succeed. This belief is in part based on research which shows that diverse and well managed teams yield better results.
