Welcome.US CEO Council

The Welcome.US CEO Council brings together America's most influential companies to help Americans as they welcome newcomers and ensure they thrive.

With visionary leadership from our co-chairs—Accenture Chair and CEO Julie Sweet and Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai—the CEO Council mobilizes private sector resources, innovations, and employees to provide support to Americans who are welcoming those seeking refuge in the U.S., dramatically expanding our nation’s capacity to welcome newcomers.

We have learned that companies can make a greater impact in our communities when we share resources and learnings. I am deeply grateful to all of the CEOs who have committed the resources of their companies to expand the impact of Welcome.US through the CEO Council. We invite businesses of all sizes to join us in support of our new neighbors as they rebuild their lives in our communities."
Julie Sweet, Chair and CEO, Accenture and Welcome.US CEO Council Co-Chair
