Account Executive, Partnership Development
Visa Pride Lead, New York, NY
How are you involved with Pride at Visa?
I’m leading the Visa Pride initiatives in New York. This is the first year we are celebrating Pride in the Big Apple – marching in the parade, welcoming guest speakers, hosting happy hours and much more – and I’m thrilled to help Visa showcase our company values in one of the most diverse cities in the world.
Why is Pride Month so important?
Pride Month is a time to celebrate, honor, and fight for our LGBTQ community – past, present, and future. It’s a reminder that we should be free to live every day with integrity and honesty, as our truest selves, not just during Pride Month but all year round.
What does “Inclusion” mean to you?
Inclusion means recognizing that each individual has a unique background that adds richness to our experiences and strengthens our growth. When we celebrate uniqueness, we flourish.
