Chief Diversity Officer
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey
The Tri-State Diversity Council has been a committed ally and supporter of Horizon-BCBSNJ. They have provided our employees with so many opportunities to grow and expand their level of understanding around Diversity & Inclusion ranging from the Women’s Leadership Symposiums, Diversity Chapter Meetings, Healthcare Summit, to the annual Diversity and Leadership Conference. Our employees have also benefited from numerous speakers that have participated in our ERG’s celebratory luncheons all due to the assistance of the Tri-State Diversity Council. Therefore, I’m committed to serving as a Board member and most recently accepting the role of Board Chair so that I can give back and lend my support to this very worthy organization.

National Grid
National Grid has been a long-term partner with the Tri-State Diversity Council. We’ve found the seminars, monthly meetings and best practice sharing to be incredibly helpful as we continue to evolve our I&D strategy. Since the Council crosses multiple industries, the networking and relationship building opportunities are invaluable. When I have opportunities for our ERG members to attend events, I often have significantly more volunteers than tickets. This is a partnership I look forward to continuing for the years to come.

The Tri-State Diversity Council is one of many important resources that I rely on for relevant and credible content in the diversity and inclusion space. I find networking opportunities among others to share ideas with leaders of various industries while gaining insight from subject matter experts in diversity and inclusion. Not only has being on the Board of Directors supported and heightened my awareness as an individual; it has given me a platform that has increased my interest in inclusion and diversity as well as awareness among my team and leaders across my organization.

TSDC Board of Directors
The Tri-State Diversity Council has been an integral part of my life for close to five years and in that time, has touched, moved and empowered me along with so many of my employees in becoming more engaged, empathetic and inspiring leaders in the community. Through meaningful Diversity & Inclusion programming events, employees learn to unleash their leadership potential and network with peers across diverse industry segments. More importantly it has taught many how to make a valued contribution in their organizations to ultimately give back to the community with key learning insights and the adoption of best practices. Through our Women in Leadership Symposiums, I have had the treasured opportunity to hear the personal experiences and special journeys forged by truly powerful and influential women leaders in Business.
