Doug McMillon, CEO, Walmart
When he was in high school, Doug McMillon unloaded trucks at Walmart. Today, he’s the C-E-O of the world’s largest retailer. And McMillion wants to help others at Walmart find a similar path to career success. One way he’s encouraging this is by making big investments in his employees’ education. Launched in 20-18, Walmart offers its associates the chance to earn a college degree for a dollar a day.
