Mark McLane, Barclays: “Diversity and Inclusion should be about first recognizing that our colleagues are our customers; they are not separate and distinct”.

Andrea Agnew, Comcast: “My grandmother told me to go out in this world and find your purpose to leave the world better than the world you found. In other words, ‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world’ (Mahatma Gandhi)”.
