Why I’m Still a ‘Not Ready’ for a White House Correspondents’ Dinner
Newegg CEO Brian Krzanich is taking the first steps toward putting together a White Houses Correspondents Dinner.
The company will host the event on May 12 at a New York City hotel.
The evening is being billed as a celebration of “the diversity of our country” and “the importance of diversity and inclusion in our workplaces, schools, and communities.”
Krzanicich told The New York Times that the event is part of a broader effort to “celebrate diversity and inclusive diversity” and to promote the importance of inclusion in America.
In the wake of the election of President Donald Trump, the company said that it will be hosting an event featuring “a variety of speakers, guests, and guests from all political stripes” for a total of $10,000.
Krzanik is not alone.
Earlier this month, Newegg announced that it was looking to host a White Supremacist event at its headquarters in California, where it will host a series of panels on “How We Can Make America Safe for All Americans.”
The company has hosted a number of events at the company’s headquarters, including a “White Supremacy Awareness Week” and an “A Day Without Hate” event.
