Thais’s 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.

What impressed me most about Thais’s work at Coca-Cola Enterprises was how she engaged the business in understanding and embracing the topic of gender balance, why it was good for business and their role in owning and moving the needle.

Thais is a fabulous keynote speaker. It’s amazing how she engages huge audiences and delivers powerful messages in a fun way. She’s a great role model and has a unique style: she’s wonderfully feminine and yet makes such a strong and tough impression.

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 the diversity & inclusion topic.

I first met Thais while working on an ambitious multi-company project in France. Its aim was to demonstrate that managing Diversity& Inclusion strategically leads to better performance and stronger business results. During our numerous taskforce discussions on the project, Thais was convinced that for business’ to take D&I seriously, there had to be benefit for organization, be it innovation, increased profitability, better relationships with end users. It was clear working with her that this key understanding made her an asset to her organization. Understanding their strategic goals to ensure that D&I is part of the business agenda because it’s good for business.

I had the great pleasure of working with Thais while we were both at Coca-Cola Enterprises. She brought an entirely new dimension to our Diversity and Inclusion work by introducing a wide range of diagnostic tools and insights. From unconscious bias research and training to detailed analyses of plant sites, the work that Thais led helped us to completely change our approach to D&I and really accelerate the results.

Thais made me discover the power of inclusive leadership in a very concrete way. She brings simplicity to a very complex topic. Since I started applying the principles I learned with her, my team is performing much better. As a team, we’re more engaged, more creative, more responsive to our internal customers. I see what’s in it for me, and I feel really empowered to build and manage a diverse team.
