Alight appoints global inclusion and diversity leader
Lincolnshire, Ill. September 21, 2020
— Alight Solutions, a leading provider of next level human capital and business solutions, today announced that Xan Daniels has been promoted to the newly created role of global inclusion and diversity leader. In her new role, Xan will partner with Alight leaders to ensure inclusion and diversity is visible, valued and sustained across the company.
Before even beginning in her new role, Xan’s leadership has been pivotal to elevating Alight’s focus on inclusion and diversity. Most recently, she co-led Alight’s Inclusion Council and sponsored the launch of six colleague-led communities aimed at fostering a culture where all Alight colleagues feel valued and empowered to bring their whole selves to work. Xan has also been instrumental in facilitating colleague listening sessions held over the past few months in response to racial injustice.
“Whether we are in the office or working apart, ensuring all of our colleagues are comfortable, proud and able to bring their whole selves to work each day is a cornerstone of our values,” said Stephan Scholl, chief executive officer at Alight. “Xan’s contributions to Alight have been considerable and elevating her to a role where she will be able to put her passion into action as her primary responsibility will ensure that, as a leadership team and colleague community, we continue to focus on cultivating a work environment that values every colleague.”
Creating the global inclusion and diversity leader role is the most recent step Alight has taken as it continues to conduct listening sessions and survey colleagues about the importance of diversity and inclusion at Alight.
“I’m thrilled that Alight is making this explicit and intentional next step in its journey to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace,” said Xan Daniels. “I feel a profound sense of obligation to honor my own journey and to honor our colleagues that are making this journey with me to help build a culture that stands up against social injustice and ensures that Alight is a place where all colleagues feel they belong.”
Xan’s 17-year career at Alight and its predecessor organizations has spanned various roles across the business. Most recently she served as the test management global practice leader for Alight’s Professional Services business.
