What have you had to change during the past year to make sure you were still “serving” even if the approach had to change?

I always served but this past year I became more intentional on where I focused my energy. So much needed to be done everywhere I looked. To prevent feeling overwhelmed, I made a plan for work, family, and community. I put it all on my calendar. I hosted Employee Resource Group meetings virtually during the day and attended board service and community meetings on Zoom in the evenings. I also blocked time on Saturdays to use social media to raise awareness of causes and Sundays to drop off supplies to porches, write cards and make well-being calls. A few dedicated hours make a big difference.

The past year has not only been challenging with COVID but we have also faced race and discrimination challenges and realities as a state and a country. How do you establish a strategy for diversity, equity and inclusion in your organization and how do you use your influential voice to help others understand the importance?

Our organization has a dedicated Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) team that is focused on recruiting, absorption and advancement of diverse talent. I chair an Employee Resource Group which supports the strategy primarily through engagement such as dialogues, book clubs and topical workshops.
