Boykin Farr, who has managed the company’s internal diversity and inclusion programs since 2017, will continue to oversee the D&I; function. In her new role, she will also manage the Emerson Charitable Trust, coordinate the company’s corporate social responsibility reporting and serve as community liaison in St. Louis, the global headquarters of the Fortune 200 company. She will take over CSR duties from Dave Rabe, who is retiring in December after 36 years with Emerson, most recently serving as vice president of corporate social responsibility the past four years.
“Akberet is a proven leader and strategist who has been at the forefront of our D&I; initiatives and has contributed to the shaping of our internal and external CSR strategies. She also knows St. Louis and will be able to build on the strong relationships Dave Rabe has established for Emerson throughout the community,” said Emerson chairman and CEO David N. Farr. “Bringing together oversight of our D&I; and social responsibility strategies and initiatives is a logical evolution that will further align these efforts with our values and drive continued progress for the benefit of all our stakeholders.”
