“Thais’ passion and mastery of the diversity & inclusion topic has not only provided me with the inspiration to commence my own journey of discovery but also equipped me with the tools to make this sustainable for my team”
“Thais is an expert in corporate diversity & inclusion. At Vinci, she supported us to build our strategy, implement programs and assess our progress. She carried out diagnostics in nearly a hundred of our subsidiaries across Europe and North America. She designed training and action planning tools. Thanks to her excellent inter-personnel and multicultural skills, she succeeded at influencing business leaders that were not very used to dealing with the diversity & inclusion topic”
