"Building diverse teams is just one part of the equation,” said Randall Tucker, Chief Inclusion Officer, Mastercard. “We also have to create an inclusive culture where employees in all their diversity feel valued and respected. Inclusion is a leadership skill that has to be developed. When we do it right, it's better for business and our communities."
