Walmart U.S. president and CEO, John Furner, takes his popular video podcast, “The Huddle with John Furner,” on the road, hosting a candid conversation with Dr. James Cash, The James E. Robison Professor, and Senior Associate Dean, Emeritus at Harvard Business School. In this video podcast format recorded live at Retail’s Big Show, Dr. Cash will share his business and leadership perspectives, drawing from his vast experience that includes holding board positions at 15 Fortune 100 companies, including Walmart’s. Dr. Cash has been instrumental in laying the foundation for Walmart’s minimum wage increases and played a role in shaping Walmart’s workplace culture and employee retention strategies. Look for Furner to chat with Dr. Cash about his many “firsts,” including the first Black student-athlete at Texas Christian University (TCU), the first Black faculty member to receive tenure at Harvard Business School, and the first to launch community-based initiatives focusing on racism and racial inequality as part of the Boston Celtics’ ownership group. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear firsthand about these triumphs and more from Dr. Cash’s extraordinary career.
