What do you personally and collectively want to accomplish with our DE&I Council?
Personally, and collectively, I hope we establish a supportive and welcoming workplace environment in which employees of all backgrounds and demographics can work together and grow their careers. I would like to see this group of individuals from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives contribute creative ideas that are innovative and even offer disruptive new ways of thinking and problem solving. My hope is that these conversations lead to initiatives, actions, and inclusive practices that become part of our day-to-day operations. I want to be a part of progressing the DE&I council’s mission and use my skill set to drive these initiatives and see them prioritized in our company.
Why did you join the council?
I joined the council to share my insights and my perceptions of what it personally means to work at our company, as a voice for women and mothers, and to partner and advocate for those that are underrepresented. I have worked with many of the team members on the council in various capacities, and honestly, joined for the opportunity to partner with these talented individuals again towards a collective purpose.
