“Transportation connects people, goods and communities.”
Chief Diversity Officer, XPO Logistics, Inc.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I joined XPO as head of human resources in 2018. As the Chief Diversity Officer, I am responsible for helping my organization drive diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I).
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT YOUR INDUSTRY?
I am solutions-driven by nature, so I enjoy working in the transportation industry because I like the solutions that we drive to our customers, shareholders, and people in general. Transportation connects people, goods, and communities.
WHAT DOES DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION MEAN TO YOU?
I have found a unique connection between DE&I and the trucking industry. In my opinion, the two share the same goals which is the connection of people to resources. Logistics and supply chain are the vehicles that connect people to goods and services in the same way that diversity, equity and inclusion connect people to a company culture, they go hand in hand.
