The President’s Forum on Inclusive Excellence


Fred Whitfield, President and COO of the Charlotte Hornets was the keynote speaker at this important event at Clemson. This was the first in a planned series of twice-yearly forums with corporate executives and higher education leaders who have track records of building successful, inclusive organizations. The President’s Forum was suggested by Lee Gill, Clemson’s chief inclusion and equity officer and special assistant to the president for inclusive excellence. The Forums’ theme is the high value placed on inclusiveness by successful CEOs and their organizations.

As part of the event, Dr. James R. Martin was awarded the James E. Bostic, Jr. Diversity and Inclusive Excellence Award. The award recognizes faculty, staff and students for displaying an exceptional commitment to fostering an environment in which diversity is understood, valued, respected and appreciated.
