Chair, Inclusion & Diversity Council, True Value Co.
Inclusion matters to me and to True Value Company because it makes associates feel valued, trusted, and empowered. It ultimately leads to better engagement and helps in retaining, as well as attracting, new talent. At the core of inclusion is diversity, which we embrace because we all come from different walks of life and our unique characteristics, ideas, backgrounds, and experiences not only make us a better company, but a more innovative one with a competitive advantage. More simply, it's just the right thing to do. No one should ever feel excluded or ostracized because they are different from their peers. Everyone should be embraced and treated equally. By celebrating our associates' differences, we maximize our full potential.
