Diverse Suppliers

Paula Marshall  /  Chief Executive Officer & Chief Inclusion Officer, Bama Companies

To ensure organizational-wide participation and buy-in, that intent must begin in the executive office. Tulsa is fortunate to have a number of senior executives personally committed to championing inclusivity. < more >
