Quincy Amekuedi, Talent Acquisition and Diversity & Inclusion Leader (Rolesville, N.C. resident)
Quincy is a highly engaged employee who firmly believes that we are all better people, leaders and organizations when we welcome diverse thoughts, experiences and talents. Quincy has been an instrumental part of the growth in diversity representation Genworth has experienced over the last three years and keeps diversity as a focal point in all discussions to ensure the organization is growing together in cultural awareness development opportunities. A few of Quincy’s responsibilities include promoting diversity in every step of the recruiting process; supporting and helping to promote all of the company’s employee resource groups in their work to reach across the organization to provide educational and development opportunities for all employees; and having open and honest conversations with internal hiring teams to assess hiring gaps. Quincy has always subscribed to the belief that the issue of inequality is not a singular company, industry, or regional issue and we must use our collective strengths and resources to make progress, as well as advocating for the equal treatment and elevation of the often-unheard voices of the underrepresented groups that need our help.
