Leadership:

“It’s not a male or female leadership traits, it’s 21st century leadership traits that we need.” - Sarah Alter, Network of Executive Women

Transparency:

“Let’s have truthful conversations. When you worry about being polite, you miss the opportunity to have the conversation to solve problems.” - Marvin Ellison, J. C. Penney Company, Inc.

 Culture:

“We need to foster a culture where people can be their true self — so not just bringing everyone in but making everyone feel at home and making sure culture isn’t about fit or a certain style.” - Benno Dorer, The Clorox Company 

Driving change:

“It’s an exciting journey. It’s a human journey so there will be mistakes. We have to continue on.” - Hubert Joly, Best Buy Co., Inc.
