Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee Co-Chairs
What does diversity mean to me?

Victoria Hill
Director of Diversity & Social Impact

“In short, diversity means ALL—ensuring that all people are heard and seen. I am curious about and celebrate all people’s perspectives, ideas, identities, backgrounds, etc.”

Matt Crook
Sr. Vice President of Delivery

“As someone that grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and has been immersed in diverse communities all my life, diversity is very important to me. The ability to learn, respect and harmonize with people from all cultures is how I perceive diversity. I’m honored to be a co-chair on the D&I committee so that I can lead and support initiatives that can make an impact as well as demonstrate the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion and my commitment to making a difference for my children.”

Christina Walker
Sr. Manager of Talent Acquisition

“Diversity means that as a minority, I can feel safe and supported in spaces knowing that representation matters.”
