In June 2016, I had no clue where my vision would take me when it came to inclusion and diversity at Avanade. One morning, I decided to reach out to the acting Global Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) Lead for a candid conversation on this matter. During the call, I remember hearing, “Build a platform with passion, empathy, inclusivity and the rest is history.” It wasn’t until late that evening, during a deep moment of reflection, that I realized how powerful that message was. This message inspired me to connect with many like-minded employees who shared my vision. After exchanging our stories, the need to build a diverse and inclusive workplace – specifically for people who self-identify as black, African American or African descent – became apparent at Avanade.
On Friday, May 17, 2019, we officially launched INSPIRE | Black Employee Network, a significant milestone in our Global I&D agenda at Avanade. INSPIRE stands for “Investing in the Next Set of Pioneers, Innovators, Researchers and Engineers.”
I am very proud to work alongside passionate people who lead, embrace and champion change by doing.
