Leaders need to think beyond their biases and see the opportunities that can make a huge impact on the organization’s bottom line.

Don’t jeopardize the significant benefits that diversity and inclusion can have on your organization! Leaders think it’s just the right thing to do, but it's absolutely crucial in order for businesses to thrive in the diverse world we live and operate in.

I host Theresa Torres, CDEIO of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where she shares how organizations benefit from being more diverse and inclusive and how to put concrete actions into place.

Prior to working at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, she worked as a leader at ADP, Verizon, and Merril Lynch.

She loves her work, is inspired by the talent/knowledge of others she gets to work with, and believes success is a unique journey defined by the individual.
