In a fireside chat with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Becky Sidelinger, President, Reliability Solutions, joins leaders from Redfin, Convoy, and Oak View Group to discuss the importance of sustainability, including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) across their workplaces and industries.
Bringing ESG and DEI together to make sustainability more accessible
In the chat titled, “Making Sustainability Accessible and Equitable for All,” Becky highlights how sustainability and DEI shows up in her early career and are integral to Flex’s business and strategy, naming experiences in the industrial business unit.
“After spending the vast majority of my career working for really large manufacturing companies, it just struck me that the products we manufacture, how we manufacture them, and the expectations we set for our suppliers and our teams have a huge impact on our environment and our community.”
