The CED discussion series, Leadership in Challenging Times, interviews business leaders about the unprecedented challenges facing the nation and how they are helping chart a path forward for both their companies and communities in which they operate.
In this interview with Lori Esposito Murray, President of the Committee of Economic Development of The Conference Board, Margaret Keane shares her thoughts on corporate diversity and inclusion efforts, the role of the CEO, how to foster innovation in any environment, and the importance of company values.
“It’s one thing to say that you have a diverse and inclusive group or company, but it’s another thing to have people walk in the door everyday and actually feel like they belong and can be their true self within the company. That’s where I think you can make a difference: When people feel like they can come in and be who they want, and not feel threatened in any way.” – Margaret Keane, Executive Chair of Synchrony
