Mastercard’s Former Chief Diversity Officer Donna Johnson: Advancing Company Culture

Mastercard’s Former Chief Diversity Officer Donna Johnson: Advancing Company Culture
November 18, 2020

Donna Johnson pioneered the chief diversity officer (CDO) role at Mastercard a decade ago – long before CDO’s were en vogue. Until she retired in 2017, she led the company’s global diversity and inclusion strategy. Donna focused on increasing employee engagement to retain diverse talent and drive business results.

She joins host Porter Braswell to talk about how to make long-term change to company culture, why she thinks we should talk about race at work, and when a company should hire a CDO.
