“Ryder had, in the early 1990s, zero diversity at the top. Today we have a leadership team that is 50 percent diverse, a board that is 55 percent diverse, and a CEO that is 100 percent Latino.”
In his keynote address at the 2015 Alumni Society Leadership Summit, Fortune 500 CEO Robert Sanchez explains how his company, Ryder System, Inc., changed the tone of its leadership from “good old boys trucking company” to inclusive and representative. They started by defining their core values, and then committed to grooming diverse talent to thrive and flourish.
