The Why? Davis is the co-executive sponsor for the Technology, Product and Experience team’s DEI initiative. She’s also worked diligently to revolutionize security posture for Comcast, and this year her team launched an internal training game on cybersecurity that’s used to help educate Comcast employees. Additionally, she helped develop online safety modules that Internet Essentials and Lift Zone partners can use to engage with their students.
She Says… “Leadership can best support DEI by first by being aware and recognizing that there is a problem. Then, supporting a systematic approach to hiring, retention, and promotion—with a special emphasis on inclusion for every teammate.”
What community support initiative has your company championed that you’re most proud of? Comcast LIFT Zones (providing wifi and other technology support in community centers and other public facilities) and Comcast RISE (helping small business owners, especially underrepresented groups).
Book I wish everyone would read: “Principles of Product Development Flow” by Donald G. Reinertsen. The book explains why invisible and unmanaged queues are the underlying root cause of poor product development performance.
What TV series or movie inspires you? “NOVA” on PBS. I think I have learned more about the world watching that show than any other.
How can leadership best support DEI? First, by being aware and recognizing that there is a problem. Then, supporting a systematic approach to hiring, retention, and promotion—with a special emphasis on inclusion for every teammate.
