How Marcel is building a better working world
"I have made diversity and inclusiveness my No. 1 priority. I believe that a healthy dialogue by a diverse team will result in a better answer for our people, our clients and our communities. We can no longer accept that even today some of us are not included, do not have a voice. Given the challenges we face, we simply cannot afford it."
