In Memoriam - Price M. Cobbs, MD 1938-2018
Diversity and inclusion lost one of its great thinkers and advisors on June 25, 2018, when Price M. Cobbs, MD passed.  Dr. Cobbs was the author, with Williams H. Grier, MD, of one of the seminal books on diversity, Black Rage (1968) as well as Cracking the Corporate Code and My American Journey.   He taught and gave advice to people ranging from students to CEO, and consulted and spoke on diversity around the world.  
 
The National Utilities Diversity Council flies our diversity flag today at half mast in honor of Price and sends our deepest sympathy to his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched with his wisdom.  
 
We ask you to keep his work and his memory alive -- read one of his books and keep moving forward the goal of an inclusive and fair society.
