Andrew Gillum

Friday, September 27, 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Luncheon: Succeeding While Black: The Dangers of Truth & Perceptions in Corporate America

Andrew Gillum, Chair, Forward Florida, is a lifelong public servant. He is recognized across Florida and the nation as a bold and inspirational leader. The former Mayor of Tallahassee and 2018 Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee, Mayor Gillum possesses the unique ability to bring people together for a common purpose and mobilize them to bring about change.

A champion for everyday people, Mayor Gillum inspired millions across Florida and the nation in 2018. He surged past four better-funded primary candidates to a history-making victory as the Florida Democratic Party’s first African-American nominee.

Mayor Gillum brought Floridians together in pursuit of fundamental human rights — the right to a well-paying job; the right to a good education; the right to quality health care; the right not to live in fear of gun violence in our schools or our streets. The only Democratic candidate for governor in Florida this century who wasn’t a millionaire, he won the hearts and minds of millions. More than two million new midterm voters turned out in Florida in 2018 — shattering all records. The movement Mayor Gillum inspired is, without a doubt, responsible.
