SHE LEADS – with Ebony Howell


Senior Director, Inclusion and Diversity

What would you tell your younger self?

I would tell my younger self the same thing that my mom told me, “Leave things and people better than you found them.” 

What was your major in college and how did you get to the position you are in today?

As an undergrad I majored in English Arts.  I then went on to get my Master’s in Business Administration with a concentration in International Business

How do you balance your work and personal life? Often times one has more importance, and we’re curious to know how you’ve handled the balance.

I was intentional about doing work that I enjoy and that I find fulfilling.  This has allowed me to not seek balance but to seek harmony.
