Across PPG, our DE&I vision and strategy are CEO led and leader driven. The commitment of our leaders cascades throughout the entire organization, with accountability shared by every employee.

Board of Directors

Our board members represent diverse backgrounds. They believe that diverse teams perform better, approving our accelerated DE&I strategy. They are investing in transforming the lives of our colleagues, customers and communities in which we operate, and they help keep us accountable for achieving our DE&I goals and commitments.

I am pleased to serve as a member of PPG’s board of directors, a role that provides a distinct view of the company's growth in diversity, equity and inclusion. It is crucial that DE&I be integrated across all levels of global organizations to create an inclusive corporate culture and society. As PPG's efforts continue, I look forward to seeing the company’s progress and providing guidance regarding its DE&I vision.

Global PPG Senior Leadership

Our senior leaders around the world are crucial to embedding DE&I across our businesses and functions. We trust them to cascade our DE&I priorities, messaging and goals so that our employees can truly be in this together.

As a leader at PPG and a mother to four energetic daughters, I am committed to helping illuminate the path for women both within PPG and in our communities. That commitment is one of the reasons I became an executive sponsor for PPG's Women's Leadership Network. By actively listening to and developing thoughtful networks for skilled women and underrepresented individuals, I hope to motivate and uplift the next generation of leaders to innovate boldly – without reservations or limitations.

PPG DE&I Ambassadors

Our DE&I Ambassadors act as change agents across the company. These leaders are passionate, dedicated and diverse, helping embed a sense of belonging for all. All are members of our strategic business unit and function leadership teams.

As a DE&I Ambassador, I'm excited about being a change agent for our organization and helping accelerate our progress in this area. I hope to help others understand that this is a journey, and we always need to be aware of the challenges that underrepresented employees have in their day-to-day lives. I encourage our employees to broaden their understanding by participating in activities that go beyond the groups they most identify with. DE&I is not only about the numbers but ensuring each employee has a sense of belonging


The five trailblazers comprising our first DE&I team reflect the diversity we aim to achieve across our workforce. Their differences in gender, race, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and more enhance their united front as owners of our DE&I strategy.

My parents are immigrants from Mexico, and they spent much of their lives working exhausting hours to uplift our family. In my current role at PPG and in graduate school at Johns Hopkins University, I draw on my parents' immigrant experiences and perspectives to fuel my DE&I work. I am elated to be part of PPG’s first-ever DE&I team and help oversee a piece of our global vision and strategy. I know our essential work will help create a more inclusive workforce and society.
