As Senior Vice President, and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Dawn is responsible for leading the design, development, and implementation of Liberty Mutual’s diversity and inclusion strategy and programs. This includes internal and external communications, metrics and measurements, benchmarking, external partnerships, and the development of employee resource groups.
