About This Meeting

John W. Rogers, Jr., Chairman, CEO & Chief Investment Officer of Ariel Investments, addressed the Detroit Economic Club on Monday, November 6, 2017, and focused on the issues of opportunity and wealth gaps facing minority communities and how businesses can help make a change.

“As a leader now, I am trying to figure out not only how we can stay focused, but how to bring others into the fold and join this cause around how do we solve this wealth gap and opportunity gap in this country because you can’t do it yourself,” said Rogers. “So, it’s another way I understand that I am growing as a leader I can’t just sit and bellyache about it, hopefully have some solutions, share those solutions with others, try to bring others into the fold again and try to make a difference.”
