When asked about his journey in the Senior Executive DEI Think Tank, Kevin’s response demonstrates a multi-faceted approach to practicing DEI: “I was drawn to the DEI Think Tank because it brings DEI practitioners together from across industries and sectors; the cross-industry collaboration allows for a much larger impact than focusing on any one industry alone.” And while Kevin finds value in the cross-industry collaboration the DEI Think Tank offers, his presence in the Think Tank, in turn, provides immeasurable value to his fellow members.
Kevin’s influence within the DEI Think Tank has already sparked a wave of transformation, both within the community and his personal network. As he shares, “Since joining the community, I have seen an uptick in exposure and engagement across my social channels, particularly LinkedIn.
