Why I have a passion for Diversity and Inclusion (DnI)?
My experience as a young business professional from a non-dominant group in corporate America has afforded me with great insight into the very real challenges that companies face as they attempt to create inclusive workplaces for everyone. This corporate journey has inspired me to join Pope Consulting and help companies create meaningful culture change.
