Appointed to the newly created role of global head of CSR, Arlene developed a global strategy that aligns with Moody’s businesses and promotes diversity and inclusion externally. Moody’s CSR strategy seeks to empower people, particularly women and BAME entrepreneurs and students, with the knowledge, resources and confidence they need to create a better future — for themselves, their communities and the environment. Arlene works in partnership with D&I to advance a diverse talent pipeline by advocating for leadership development opportunities for Moody’s BAME employees. She regularly mentors BAME professionals at varying levels and stages of their careers. She is a frequent speaker for multicultural and women’s ERGs around the world, sharing her career journey and advice. Arlene chairs the Executive Leadership Council’s International Presence Committee, whose mandate is to promote the brand in the UK by identifying potential members who demonstrate the organization’s commitment to building and supporting a pipeline of Black talent poised for business leadership. She serves as the vice chair for the Board of Visitors for Howard University’s Business School, one of the top Historically Black College and Universities. She has been featured in numerous lists including Savoy’s 100 Most Influential Blacks in Corporate America, and Black Enterprise’s 100 Most Powerful Women in Business.
