Introducing Post Sales Coordinator, Brian Ngaruiya. Brian started his ALKU career in August of 2020 and has recently been introduced as one of ALKU’s newest DE&I Council members! He will represent ALKU’s corporate pillar. We are so excited to see the new perspectives and ideas that Brian will bring to the DE&I Council.
Below, you will find a few responses from Brian regarding his perspective and motivation. Congratulations, Brian!
Who is your biggest mentor and why?
My biggest mentor is my mother. She exemplifies all the characteristics of exactly the person I want to be in every aspect of my life from her compassion, integrity, work ethic, and honesty.
What new initiatives do you hope to bring to the DE&I Council?
As a new member of the DE&I Council, I am looking forward to increasing representation within ALKU and democratizing access to development with mentoring programs that help employees of color meet their business goals.
What has motivated you to get involved in being an advocate for change on the DE&I Council?
I have always been attentive to social issues from my younger days to the present day. From providing vital information on social media about social issues to speaking at protests during the Black Lives Matter movement, I believe that our goal for justice shall never be forgotten and to be successful at this goal, we must start small before we can make a substantial change.
What are you doing every day to make sure everyone at ALKU is aware of our DE&I goals and initiatives?
I think asking questions to employees such as how they feel about their representation at ALKU, acknowledging differences, and valuing all diversity. These are ways that I like to make sure everyone in the company is aware of our DE&I goals and initiatives.
