Diane founded TNON’s BAME – Multicultural chapter in 2011 to provide a targeted support and accountability group for the mutual benefit of several early pioneers in the employee networks space. The idea arose during her tenure as the Deputy CAO, Europe at the Bank of New York Mellon. Whilst she was largely responsible for developing the corporate governance framework and monitoring adherence amongst 40 regulated entities and 240 board and committee members, her remit also extended to include several responsibilities in the area of diversity and inclusion.
It is rewarding to see how TNON’s BAME – Multicultural chapter has grown since its inception. It has helped successive generations of resource group leaders in over 65 organisations to develop their leadership skills, define best practices, drive change and shape their unique contribution to their organisation’s goals.
