The Conversation

In 1972, as EEO and Affirmative Action requirements began to be enforced in American industry, William J. Blount moved to a job rarely held by a black man; a professional position in Human Resources. Over the next 30 years, in spite of resistance to diversify workforces, he grew to higher levels of responsibility while effectively working against racial, ethnic and gender discrimination in several companies. These recollections span the establishment of his values as a child, and his learning, growth and actions over a long career.
