SPECIAL WEBCAST: The Business Case for Diversity & Inclusion in the C-store Industry

Join us for this free, one-hour webcast on Tuesday, June 15, at 2 PM.


CSNews and Altria launch a new platform for discussion, innovation, engagement and action.

George Floyd’s death and the subsequent protests were a catalyst that accelerated corporations’ review of their internal policies and programs. Convenience store industry companies, many of which had programs in place, are now prioritizing heightened awareness and action around their diversity programs and focused on highlighting the business case for diversity and inclusion.

Convenience Store News is partnering with exclusive underwriter Altria to launch a new platform to facilitate engagement among all stakeholders in the convenience store industry around diversity and inclusion. This webcast is the first of a multi-touch digital and print program that will focus on the business case for c-store retailers to place a greater emphasis on diversity and inclusion. Altria is providing exclusive underwriting support for this new platform.

In this special webcast, CSNews Editorial Director Don Longo will be joined by Derek Gaskins, Chief Marketing Officer of Yesway, Jayson Council, a thought leader on diversity and Associate Faculty member at Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies, and Danielle Holloway, Senior Director Industry Engagement at Altria Group Distribution Company to discuss:

  • Education and diversity as tools for business growth in the convenience store channel;
  • Creating a roadmap for diversity and inclusion throughout the enterprise;
  • How to support, advocate and advance diversity and inclusion; and,
  • Recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce
