Journalist Soledad O’Brien inspires colleagues to share their own stories in their own voice.

Our Cranston, RI team welcomed a special guest - award-winning journalist, speaker, author and philanthropist, Soledad O’Brien - as part of a new speaker series, jointly sponsored by Citizens’ Office of Diversity & Inclusion and our business resource groups (BRGs) - focusing on women, LGBT and multicultural colleagues, along with allies.

Soledad shared her personal and professional journey as a Black Latina woman becoming an influential figure in the field of journalism. An audience of over 250 colleagues, representing many functional areas within our company, had an opportunity to hear her story of challenge and inspiration, ask questions and network following the presentation.

Citizens Diversity & Inclusion strategy, together with the BRGs, focuses on understanding and building upon the diversity of colleagues to strengthen our business and the communities we serve. The guest speaker series is a testament of our commitment to investing in colleagues, ensuring they are supported and reaching their full potential.

Watch the video as Soledad describes the power we each hold in sharing our own stories to positively influence and contribute to our communities.
