Aon Cornerstone Innovative Solutions, launched in April 2009, brings together the global risk and human capital resources of Aon with the knowledge and experience of top MBEs to deliver adaptive solutions to serve the cultural needs of clients. This includes an established infrastructure for firms to work with qualified MBEs as well as formal training and mentoring programs for certified MBE associates and carriers to help them deliver the highest value for clients and achieve their diversity goals.

"My goal in working with Aon Cornerstone is to help them drive results through the promotion of diverse strategic alliances in the professional services field," said Earvin "Magic" Johnson, chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises. "By doing so, we can develop stronger relationships between Fortune 2000 firms and minority-owned enterprises that lead to job creation and opportunity for economic growth."
