We are very fortunate to have someone with Sandra's exceptional background."

"My most fulfilling career experiences have always focused on facilitating and accelerating the growth of others," said Ms. Rice. "Most recently, it was my privilege to serve at the forefront of an organization that develops diverse and emerging leaders for professional success.

"I'm honored to join the highly respected Center for Talent Innovation and expand on this work. Diverse and inclusive workplaces are key to creating business success and a more equitable world. I look forward to aligning with companies that are committed to this mission."
