Women of color made huge gains in representation during the COVID-19 pandemic but are still lacking at all company levels – especially in executive leadership.
Capital One and DiversityInc shared the results of their collaborative research report on women of color in the workplace at the 2022 annual Women of Color and Their Allies event held in Louisville on Sept. 21 in conjunction with Humana. The report highlighted insights and actionable strategies to improve the representation of women of color.
“It’s not enough for us to have diverse representation,” said Theresita Richard, Managing Vice President, Head of Diversity Inclusion and Belonging, Capital One. “We need to ensure that everyone here is thriving, and we have a role to play in that our mission is to change banking for good.”
