"We aren't investing in diversity and inclusion programs and initiatives because it's politically correct, or because we think it makes us look better. We are doing it because we deeply feel it's the right thing to do. Diverse views really make us a better company," said Greg Beck, Senior Vice President, CGB Enterprises, Inc.
CGB developed its women-specific program, called Lead Retain Grow, in 2014 as a way to retain and grow more females within the organization. It was a way to get new ideas and seek new opinions, while also ensuring women within CGB didn't feel like they were on the "outside." In 2019, the company embarked on a "Journey to Full Inclusion" that is continuing through virtual summits today.
