    Christopher Bylone van Sandwyk
    Global DE&I Leader

    Christopher's experiences, skillsets, and passions are as diverse as they come! From growing up on a family farm to taking modern dance classes to fulfill his art requirement for his Bachelor of Agriculture Science, to leading People Analytics and now driving Global Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. He believes that an inclusive culture does not just happen; it must be intentional. Just like being in a loving, supportive relationship, it takes work.

    Christopher strives to be a more inclusive individual with each interaction he has. Being engaged is not just about what happens during the hours we are in the office; it is the drive one has, to be a positive public advocate for the organization they are part of. His engagement comes from wanting his organization to be a better place then he found it and to better the lives of his colleagues.

    Take out any component of the Innovative Culture Formula, and it will error out! So, Christopher wantseveryone to brush up on their Purposeful Analytics to learn the ((D+E)*I)^B formula!
