President Pelton will participate in Color Magazine’s Men of Color Leadership Forum, which will be held in Boston on Thursday, October 11, at the EMC Club at Fenway Park.
The Men of Color Leadership Forum is an intimate dinner and unique panel-style discussion, featuring renowned men of color. Attendees can connect with, and learn from, these inspirational men who have excelled in their industries.

Having interviewed Dr. Pelton, I can tell you he is a great asset to Emerson and to Boston, and a perfect candidate for the panel,” he said.
