Christina Brewer-McGrath is a #WomenInTech whose passion for creating diverse teams led to success as IT Director for Sam's Club Supply Chain. We caught up with her at this week’s #NWATechSummit.
"There's an idea out there that diversity doesn’t have to be called out as a need to know it’s important. But the way I think about it is similar to the way our company identifies our basic beliefs, like integrity and respect for the individual. We call these things out because we never want to lose sight of them." #TeamWalmart
Leading up to Shareholders Week 2018, we’ll be throwing it back to some of our favorite memories from past Shareholders events – starting with Kortney. In 2015, he launched online grocery pickup at his store in Aurora, Colorado which landed him a spot on stage to introduce our CEO Doug McMillon.
