IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The year 2021 saw diversity, equity, and inclusion make it to the top of the agenda for most firms. However, we still have a long way to go before we truly achieve the balance that reflects our society’s reality.
Launched in succession to our Women in Business report last year, our new global series, Her Corner Office, brings to light the stories of opportunities, challenges, and achievements that catapulted leading women executives to success.
Our next episode features Felicia Guity, Global Executive Leadership: Chief of Staff at Google. Felicia is an accomplished, award-winning business development executive and board member who delivers on billion-dollar revenue goals through strategy, sales, digital marketing, and technical platforms.
“Who you are is not about perfection, it’s about intention.”
