After just one week, Starbucks employees will stop writing “Race Together” on your coffee cups. CEO Howard Schultz ended the effort Sunday, after days of pushback against the company’s initiative to start a conversation about race within its more than 20,000 stores. The message was meant to be “just the catalyst” for a broad conversation about race, but it quickly turned to a conversation about Starbucks. Richard discusses the campaign, and if any corporate lessons can be gleaned from how it turned out.
