FROM THE CEO’S PERSPECTIVE SERIES
Diversity: What Leaders Really Need to Know
What do leaders need to understand about diversity? How does diversity make its way to the top of a CEO’s agenda? Leaders send a powerful message when they do more than just talk the talk, but also walk the walk as they demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion. Knowing how to work amongst differences gives companies a competitive edge. Plus, studies show that organizations that understand how to utilize diverse talent benefit enormously.
Join us for a conversation with three of Seattle’s influential CEOs to hear why they made diversity a strategic priority, how they’ve executed their goals, and how that’s translated into results for the organization, its culture, and practices.
- Orlando Ashford, President, Holland America Line
- Diane Neal, CEO, Sur La Table
- Jonathan Sposato, Chairman of Geekwire, CEO PicMonkey and angel investor
This series of intimate leadership discussions is moderated by Teri Citterman, author of the book From the CEO's Perspective which captures the stories and insights of 20 top CEOs from the Greater Seattle Area. Teri is also an executive coach.
