Lori C., regional HR director for Walmart.com, who works with Nina, explains why attracting diversity of thought is so important.
“Diversity of thought prepares us for our future. It allows us to create an internal pipeline and allows young and experienced professionals to build careers while building new locations.
“A trusted, diverse, and inclusive environment allows us to jump ahead in the race and gives an advantage point because we see things from every angle. We provide solutions to the customer that are faster and more efficient because we hired to drive strategy.
“One area of focus is to be the leader and employer of choice for women in supply chain. To be that leader, we must be an inclusive environment, challenge everyday ‘norms,’ and focus on a new normal. We don’t pretend biases don’t exist but rather challenge our leaders to no longer let them.”
