Does your work environment practice diversity, equity and inclusion? To talk more about this, I can’t imagine two better people for this: Guylaine Saint Juste and Matthew Coons, who are here for this episode recorded at XeroCon, where we take a deep dive into this topic and how practicing it can help our community.
Guylaine Saint Juste serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA), a nonprofit membership association that represents more than 200,000 Black professionals in accounting, finance, and related business professions.
Matthew Coons as the Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Program Manager for Xero, is responsible for the D&I efforts in the Northern Hemisphere; including the US, Canada, the UK, and EMEA. Matthew is focused on driving a culture of inclusion through standing up Xero’s Employee Resource Group (ERG) program, developing organizational capability, and implementing data-driven approaches to drive systemic change within Xero.
