The African American Forum (AAF) is a GE affinity group that aims to strengthen African & African American employees at GE through professional development, career management, mentoring, exposure, & networking which will enable retention and growth.
In mid-September 2014, a group of ECLPs from the African American & African Forum (AAF) embarked on a journey to Washington, DC to attend the 20th AAF Symposium. Approximately 1,400 AAF members from over 35 countries attended the two day conference this year. The event showcased the AAF’s solid network and sense of family—revolving around the theme “Simply All in”.
The symposium was a star-studded line up of GE senior leaders, including but not limited to: Jeff Immelt (Chairman & CEO, GE), Keith Sherin (CEO, GE Capital), Dmitri Stockton (CEO, GE Asset Management), Lorenzo Simonelli (CEO, GE Oil & Gas), and Jay Ireland (CEO, GE Africa).
