Senior Vice President, Talent Development and Chief Diversity Officer for AT&T Debbie Storey, Vice President for Global Human Resources for General Motors Cynthia Brinkley, and Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer for Pfizer Ed Gadsden discuss Sponsorship vs Mentoring Programs at the Colloquium.

Dr. Reatha Clark King, Board Director Allina Health Systems and National Association of Corporate Directors: “The Board of Directors of any company is key to moving the needle on diversity, so they must be kept engaged and committed. The “mighty trio” who can change diversity policy quickly consists of the Board, the CEO, and the CDO (Chief Diversity Officer).”
