IL Gov. drinks chocolate milk to show how much he loves diversity

Amber Randall, DCNF

The Illinois governor took a big gulp of chocolate milk to demonstrate his love of diversity during a Thursday Black History Month event in Chicago.

Hyatt Hotels diversity and inclusion executive Tyronne Stoudemire poured some chocolate syrup into a glass of milk to show the importance of inclusion and diversity in a company, reports the Chicago Tribune. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner agreed to drink the chocolate milk, saying he’d be “proud to.” Taking a big sip, Rauner flashed the crowd a thumbs up and said “It’s really, really good! Diversity!”


“This chocolate syrup represents diversity,” Stoudemire said.”When you look at most organizations, diversity sits at the bottom of the organization.You don’t get inclusion until you actually stir it up.”
