Susan, Morgan Stanley’s Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion, recognises that the world isn’t perfect. And when life gets tough, you have to talk about it.

That’s why Reid organised a panel discussion at Morgan Stanley on diversity and race in the wake of tense police interactions across the country. Reid knew a memo from executives wouldn’t suffice; she wanted Morgan Stanley employees to come together for a conversation. Around 1,500 employees participated, which Reid says “was one of the most powerful things we’ve done” because it opened the door for more conversations.
