Guest Speaker: Nichelle Grant
Grant has been involved with diversity and inclusion at Siemens for more than 10 years, which has included voluntarily leading employee resource groups and diversity councils for Siemens USA. Most recently, she has played an integral role working with supply chain and procurement teams to increase supplier diversity efforts. For many customers, this is core to doing business with Siemens.
Grant’s leadership in diversity and inclusion extends far beyond human resources and has a much broader reach into topics that drive change and impact the workforce, workplace and marketplace. Grant will drive a more holistic approach to building and leveraging a workforce that mirrors the diversity of the company's customer base, suppliers, partners and society. She strives to help Siemens continue to drive an inclusive work environment that actively involves every employee’s ideas, knowledge, perspectives, approaches and styles to maximize business success. And, she will systemically address, through data and analytics, customer diversity requirements that are now prerequisites and conditions for both routine and complex contracts.
