Diversity Woman Magazine shared that her identification and experiences as an African American, a woman, and an out lesbian have shaped her approach to diversity and inclusion and her career as a change agent.
“I am so honored to be included in this list. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) work is not easy. Every accomplishment brings a multitude of setbacks. Once you think you have broken through, another obstacle materializes. If you are lucky, you have like-minded colleagues and a network of women like the warriors on this list, most of whom I admire and mimic,” shared Bell. “Thank you, Diversity Woman Media, for seeing and acknowledging us. Thank you, Dr. Sheila Robinson, for shining a light on black women who are determined to make the workplace more equitable.”
Bell is responsible for recruiting talent and developing DTCC’s next generation of leaders through focused sponsorships and talent advancement strategies. She partners with business leaders to identify diverse talent across all levels of the organization focusing on their growth and mobility, and with Human Resources to ensure diversity and inclusion are fully integrated into working practices. Additionally, Keisha leads Corporate Philanthropy and Social Responsibility for DTCC.
