How can leadership best support DEI? I am so proud to work for a company that passionately believes that infusing more diversity, equity, and inclusion in all areas of our society will not only create a more just world, but this is a vital part of our company’s success. Our Employee Resource Groups provide a powerful platform for our employees’ voices to be heard. One of the most compelling experiences that I get from being the National Champion of our Unidos ERG is hearing first-hand some of the insight and perspectives from our employees as we discuss important issues that truly matter to them. This is why I strongly believe it is so important for leaders to take the time to not only listen but to actively seek out different perspectives.
