D&I CONNECTION: Panelist at the 2013 Women@Blue Conference
TOOK ADVANTAGE OF: The company's leadership development programs. "They helped me understand who I was, what I wanted to be, and what it means to be a diversity leader. I also got the opportunity to interact with other diverse candidates."
CORPORATE CULTURE: "Three quarters of our workforce is female. It's a very family-oriented culture and relationships mean a lot. I'm an outgoing person, so I make sure to develop those relationships to get things done."
UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE: "I bring a different lens. Not only am I different as an African American, but also as a woman working in IT, which is traditionally male-dominated. My insights into my own community are valuable. Also, I'm willing to share what's on my mind."
