Facebook is the world’s largest online community, and arguably the most diverse when it comes to users. How do its leaders build and maintain an internal culture that reflects this user base? What does it take daily to execute on this plan, and how does the D&I team keep focus under public scrutiny? Maxine Williams leads D&I work at Facebook. We’ll hear firsthand from her about the daily work required to meet Facebook’s goals, as well as the initiatives she’s led during the pandemic to marshal Facebook’s resources towards lifting the hardest hit communities.
