Angela Russell, the Chief Diversity Officer at Madison-based TruStage, will present a session titled “Mindset to Skillset: Creating DEI Competency in the Workplace” on November 6 at the 365 Leadership Summit.
Russell is Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Vice President of TruStage (formerly CUNA Mutual Group), where she is responsible for leading the development, direction and implementation of short and long-term strategies and programs that support Diversity and Inclusion and overseeing the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility program.
In 2018, Angela was named as one of the nation’s most powerful diversity executives by Black Enterprise magazine.
Russell has nearly 20 years of professional experience involving diversity and inclusion, external relations and outreach, communications, policy development, and research and evaluation.
Angela holds a master’s degree in Population Health from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from Beloit College.
“Folks who are trying to figure out how to begin DEI work at their organization and those who maybe have DEI programs at work but are trying to decide what next steps are in their journey will find this session particularly insightful,” Russell said. “This will be an environment where everyone, no matter how much DEI knowledge they have can come, learn and freely exchange ideas.”
The sixth annual summit will take place November 6 and 7 and include more than 20 panel discussions on a wide range of topics, as well as the largest-ever 365 Leadership Community Choice Awards. Registration is open now at this link.
