Naz Mir

Bridget Finkeldey

Naz Mir is the Global DEI Business Partner and EMEA DEI Lead at ServiceNow. A seasoned HR professional, he has spent the last 6 years focused within the diversity, equity and inclusion space working across various industries including tech, fashion, nonprofit, wealth management, legal and telecoms – just to name a few.

Naz describes himself as a gay, second-generation Bangladeshi immigrant. While growing up, he didn’t always know how the many different intersects of his identity should interact with one another, whether it be LBGTQ+, faith or culture. As time passed, Naz realized that he didn’t need to fit into boxes and could forge his own path. He says it allowed me to embrace my uniqueness as a superpower. He gets out of bed every morning to help others realize that… “what makes you different, gives you power”.

Naz loves spending his spare time exploring the world with his partner of 6 years, Andrew. He has a particular love of Tudor history, horror films, Lego building, and cross stitching and you can always find him playing along to quiz/game shows on TV!

Marco Osuna

Bridget Finkeldey

Marco Osuna is the Service Offerings Sr. Manager in Training, Alliance Enablement, and Certification Organization (TACO) at ServiceNow. In his role, Marco defines and maintains world-class service offerings, focused on the highest priority areas that allow TACO to accelerate product adoption and drive business outcomes with customers and partners around the world.

As a global co-chair for Pride at ServiceNow, Marco relentlessly pushes for progress in the pursuit of equitable balance in the workplace. He also strives to elevate emotional intelligence by sharing his lived experiences, thus increasing the possibility for individuals to break down barriers that separate them. Marco believes when allies speak up on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community, in their absence, it resonates beyond boundaries.

Marco and his husband, Kevin live in Dallas, Texas, where they celebrate and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community—not just now, but all year round. While it looks different for everyone, they do this by being their authentic selves every day and through storytelling when the moment calls for it. Additionally, they recall the challenges, joys, heartaches, and heartwarming moments along their journeys, then remind others through storytelling that there will be highs and lows along the road, but even from those lows, there is something good we learn from them.
