The Carnegie Council was founded in New York City in 1914, when Andrew Carnegie assembled a group of religious, academic, and political leaders and appointed them trustees of an organization named the Church Peace Union, forerunner to the Carnegie Council, an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to research and education in the field of ethics and international affairs.

Ware joined Coca-Cola in 1974 as an urban and governmental affairs specialist. In 1979, he was named vice president of special markets for Coca-Cola USA, with responsibility for expanding African American and Hispanic marketing and advertising programs. In 1982, Ware was elected vice president of urban affairs to oversee the company's domestic and international external affairs and philanthropic programs. He was elected a senior vice president of the company in 1986.

Ware began his career as director of housing for the Urban League of Pittsburgh Inc. From 1970 to 1973, he worked for the Atlanta Housing Authority as director of family and community services and deputy director of urban redevelopment. In 1973 he was elected to the Atlanta City Council and served as its president from 1976 to 1979. Ware chaired the Metropolitan Atlanta United Way Campaign in 1990, helping to raise more than $51 million for disadvantaged families in the Atlanta community.
