Rosalind “Roz” Brewer

 

With her appointment in 2021, Roz Brewer became the only African American woman CEO of a Fortune 500 company, Walgreens.  She was also the first African American to lead a Walmart division as president and CEO of Sam’s Club. While at Sam’s Club, she made a $13.6M commitment to women and minority business owners by increasing their access to capital via the company’s Small Business Economic Mobility Initiative. This commitment to marginalized communities through the creation of diverse and inclusive workforces has been a consistent theme for her in all her leadership roles.
