“We are proud to announce the creation of the Equity and Inclusion Advisory Council. Each council member brings his or her experience, expertise and perspective as a recognized diversity and inclusion leader to our organization’s commitment to support racial equity and economic inclusion,” said Diana Starks, vice president of People and Culture and director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion.
