Creating An Atmosphere Where DEI Can Thrive

Posted by Deanna Singh | Dec 2, 2021 3:00:00 AM

Guillermo Gutierrez and Deanna Singh have quite a lot in common, including their drive to travel across the globe, investing themselves into communities, and sharing that with others. In this conversation, Guillermo and I discuss how important their experiences with travel have impacted their DEI journeys and have helped them exercise empathy and understanding, which we carry with us in our day-to-day.

After graduating from university with a BA in marketing, he spent the next two and a half years working abroad, where he really discovered his professional calling in learning and development and cultural coaching. He later received his MS in Organizational Development, which lead him to a career of over 22 years, with different corporate roles in Human Resources and as a consultant to Fortune 500 companies. In his current role, he serves as the Director of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity for ManpowerGroup. To connect with Guillermo, find him on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/gutierrezguillermo/
