Executive Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Way-Maker
Providing consulting and strategic solutions that enable inclusion and belonging in workplaces
across the globe.
When organizations are looking to build next generation human capital strategies that align with the growth goals of the business in scope and scale, that’s when I put my 30 years of HR expertise to work, developing solid bottom up workplace inclusion and diversity program frameworks, or optimizing and “leveling up” existing ones. I wholeheartedly believe in the value and purposeful work associated with inclusive and diverse workplaces.
My passion for creating cultures where everyone can thrive when they bring their whole self to work in environments that provide a sense of belonging, is the driving force behind my work. Throughout my career, I've built a solid reputation as a trusted advisor and expert, spending many years consulting in leadership and board member capacities for a variety of industries within the public, private, non-profit, and government sectors. With adept knowledge in strategic planning and program improvement, I strive to evolve business practices that ultimately promote employee personal and professional well-being and equality for all.
Most recently, I served as Director, Work(place) Forward – Global Inclusion & Diversity, for Arrow Electronics. I was responsible for developing then driving inclusive workplace and employee experience strategies across the enterprise with a laser focus on ensuring diversity and inclusion advancement is positioned as a key business imperative through my role as Chair of Arrow’s Global Inclusion & Diversity Council.
