She certainly has taken her own advice, pursuing leadership and training programs and building a strong network to guide her journey from computer development to cybersecurity to RGA. At every step, she has looked for organizations that were willing to not only include her but invest in her potential.
“The people are really amazing at RGA –the people really make the culture, which is very warm and open. I joined in the middle of the pandemic, and I was able to meet all types of people virtually. Inclusion really starts with a conversation and a connection, but it doesn’t end there.
For all of our differences, there usually is something that unites us as humans. And when I look back at all the mentors I’ve had, each relationship was based on shared values and characteristics that we could bring out in each other, ways we could make each other better. Too often companies stop at the beginning, at hiring, but RGA is one of those rare companies that invests in retaining you, in including you, and in continuing to bring people together. You’ll find the best kind of creativity and innovation here, because you just get this broad group, across age, gender, and ethnicity, and you have a leadership that is willing to help you grow, learn, and connect together.”
