Episode 18 – Setting Your DEI Strategy Up for Success – Arizona Diamondbacks – EVP and Chief Legal Officer – Nona Lee


There’s a phrase ‘Sports imitates life.”  What happens in sports is often a reflection of life and society. In 1947 Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Baseball,  75 years ago. How far have we come since then?

There are people who excel and bring their ‘A’ game each day AND are true game changers, true role models inspiring people as inclusive leaders for teams to deliver transformative change in the workplace and the community.

Be sure to listen to this thought-provoking episode with Nona Lee, Executive Vice President & Chief Legal Officer & Chair D-backs for Change Justice. Equity. Diversity. Inclusion. (J.E.D.I. Council) at Arizona Diamondbacks. She is also a member of Chief, a  membership network focused on connecting and supporting women executive leaders.

She reveals insightful tips and stories about DEI as a core value, its impact on the business, the communities the organization entertains and serves from a C-Suite perspective. She reflects on her childhood, career, DEI strategic planning, and action,

overcoming barriers to inclusion and equity and the legacy of building a better work environment for all people to contribute and thrive, now and for generations to come.

We are so glad to have Nona share as A Diversity, Equity & Inclusion champion and Black, gay woman who applies her expertise and lived experience to make a difference in others’ lives, in the sports world, and beyond.
