Twelve industry leaders have been named to the inaugural Network of Executive Women Inclusion Committee, which will define and lead the Network’s inclusion strategy and create accountability for diversity and inclusion among the Network’s 20 regions. The committee also is charged with increasing diverse representation among NEW staff and Board members and creating and measuring D&I success metrics.

Led by NEW Diversity and Inclusion Chair Ken Charles of General Mills, committee members are NEW Director At-Large Dorria Ball of Mondelēz International, Alice Chan of Frito-Lay NA, Melissa Donaldson of Walgreens, NEW Director At-Large Vicki Felker of Nestlé Purina PetCare, Tara Frank of Hallmark Cards Inc., Millette Granville of Delhaize America, Srishti Gupta of IRI, Greg Kerl of Frito-Lay NA, Eva Kohn of CBA Industries, Marie Quintana of Tu Familia, Reuben Shaffer of The Kroger Co. and Greg Warren of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

"The NEW Inclusion Committee is working to establish and support diversity and inclusion throughout the Network's learning programs, events and infrastructure and to align all of the Network's efforts with our sponsors' business objectives," Charles said. "Our goal is to ensure everything the Network does reflects all of the businesses, consumers and communities we serve. We can achieve this through advocacy, education and leadership for all women and men.”

NEW Secretary Regenia Stein of Ingenuity Consulting serves as committee advisor; Subriana Pierce of Navigator Sales and Marketing is the committee's inclusion consultant.
