In 1 Sentence, Walgreen’s CEO Roz Brewer Reveals What We Still Don’t Get About Equality — And How We Can Get It Right.

In late 2021, CEO Roz Brewer of Walgreens Boots Alliance sat down with The Harvard Business Review for a chat. The thrust of the interview? Empowering employees, importance of learning the inner-workings of business, and the problems we still face in diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI).

Brewer is a Black female CEO — one of two in the Fortune 500s — and has an impressive career stretching from drive-thru work at Starbucks to trucking for Walmart and, most recently, helming one of the biggest health and wellness companies in the country.

Her experience is a gold mine for entrepreneurs, as the HBR interview revealed. Not only does it show what would-be business leaders need to do to climb the ladder (hint: pay attention, listen, work in the trenches, and do the “worst and the best” of the jobs so you really know the business), but uncovers the embarrassing DEI ruptures that still rift the workforce.
