Throughout her career, Brewer has established a strong presence in the name of diversity and inclusion. Her past experience as head of Walmart's Sam's Club business helped shape much of her tenacity and skill.
When Brewer left Walmart to join the Starbucks executive team in 2017, she displayed the fruits of her efforts by introducing more discipline in their operations, improving stores and adding great value to the business. She also led many of the coffee company's diversity initiatives during her time.
By the time Brewer joins Walgreens, there will be around 40 women CEOs in the Fortune 500 list of companies. In terms of diversity and inclusion, the number marks some progress but with Brewer being only the third black female CEO in its history, there's certainly a lot of room for improvement.
