In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the CBS Diversity and Inclusion Council, CBS RAD and CBS Women’s Networking Group, our multicultural and women’s employee resource groups, hosted “A Conversation with Rosie Rios” in New York, Studio 19. The conversation, which was moderated by Josie Thomas, EVP, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, CBS Corporation and Chair of the CBS Diversity and Inclusion Council, allowed for Rios to discuss her time as the 43rd Treasurer of the United States and the longest serving treasury official. She also discussed going back to her alma mater, Harvard University, as a visiting scholar, studying millennials and post millennials, and being the first Latina to have her portrait unveiled there. The Teachers Righting History Project, Notable Women and the power of negotiation were some other topics discussed. You can watch the full interview here.
Noted Thomas, “It has been my honor and privilege to introduce the leadership qualities that Rosie not only exemplifies but also shares forward to our employees from Los Angeles to San Francisco and now New York. Rios’ dynamic message of inspiration leading to aspiration and visibility affirming value truly resonated with all of our fully engaged audience.”
This past March, Rios also spoke to employees in our Los Angeles and San Francisco offices. You can watch the full Los Angeles conversation in the Diversity section of CBS & You
