d i v e r s i t y w o m a n . c o m W i n t e r 2 0 1 8 D I V E R S I T Y W O M A N 47 SHARI SLATE, Vice President, Chief Inclusion and Collaboration Officer • I'm focusing on delivering innovative solutions that benefit everyone—like expanding our commitment to fair pay, taking a stand for social justice throughout our communities, and accelerating diverse talent across the full spectrum of different backgrounds, abilities, genders, generations, cultures, ethnicities, orientations, and perspectives. EHRIKA GLADDEN, Vice President, Technology and Market Development • Creating a pipeline of diverse talent is critical. This means I actively advocate and mentor extraordinary talent committed to excellence—this is a top priority for me. I see the potential in people, and I act as their partner, mirror, sounding board, challenger, and supporter of their journey. KATE O'KEEFFE, Senior Director, Cisco Hyperinnovation Living Labs (CHILL) • As a champion of innovation, I've always seen the creative value of diversity. And now that I'm pregnant with a daughter, I feel an even greater urgency to drive disruptive inclusion. I've built a team that is ethnically, culturally, and gender diverse to have the best pool of talent and ideas. JUDY PRIEST, Distinguished Engineer, Chief Technology and Architecture Office • I like to encourage women to pursue leadership in technical roles. STEM positions, in general, see higher female attrition, about 50 percent after just 12 years. To offset that, I actively mentor female engineers, lead and advise teams, give technical talks to increase understanding and exposure to new technologies, and work to inspire innovation.
