Spotlight on You

Captain Tahira Brown and First Officer Diana Lugemwa became the first Black female crew to fly a FedEx aircraft. The historic trip comes as less than 1% of the world’s professional pilots are Black women. “I do feel a responsibility," said Lugemwa. "I just know that so many people paved the way for me, like Tahira, and it’s my job as I move up to reach back and help any young girl who has this dream of becoming a pilot.”

Krystal Barker Buissereth, head of financial wellness at Morgan Stanley, was interviewed in Reuters about how a few financial lifelines can help people in trouble while also boosting an employer's talent attraction and retention efforts. "For employers, they have learned that attracting and retaining talent is not just about salary. Their benefits packages need to be tied to their goals and their (human resources) objectives, so that employees can bring their best selves to work," said Barker Buissereth.

Gina Coleman will lead PNC Bank's diversity and inclusion efforts as chief diversity officer, effective January 1, 2022. She succeeds Marsha Jones, who has successfully led PNC’s Diversity and Inclusion efforts for the past decade, and who is retiring. “It is a privilege to lead PNC’s diversity and inclusion efforts, particularly at this important moment in time,” said Coleman.

Logan Hutchinson, lead, social impact analysis and innovation at ATB Financial, has received a Certificate in Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability Reporting from the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship.
