"I grew up in the segregated south, so I have a perspective. But at the same time, I don’t want to make the point just because I am African American. I don’t want to have to be the one to remind everyone that I’m the only one that knows it. I lived the journey, I’ve seen the adverse impacts of a lack of diversity, but have also seen the impact of an inclusive society in the workplace when you are invited to the table."
Marva Smalls, Executive Vice President of Global Inclusion Strategy, Viacom
