Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

There is no question that 2020 has had challenges that were unprecedented. However, the issues that are at the foundation of the Black Lives Matter movement have existed for a long time, and this is a moment where all of us can reflect on our world and also on our profession.

Sherry Williams is a distinguished leader in ethics and compliance, and her most recent role was at Jabil as the Vice President, Deputy General Counsel and Global Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer. Before that, she was also the Chief Compliance Officer at Halliburton.

Sherry graciously agreed to speak with Lisa Fine about the current situation in the US from her perspective - as a Black woman who has worked at the most senior levels of large organizations. She started at a major law firm and speaks about her personal experiences and learnings over the years - from challenging norms to addressing microaggressions.

Sherry is also a mother and talks about how this moment has impacted her in that role, and how different generations perceive and address societal issues. She also talks about the unique role that compliance officers have, and how we can use our work to address inequity and inequalities.

This is first episode which has a specific focus on race in the U.S., but the Great Women in Compliance podcast is committed to be a part of this discussion and learning from different voices in the ethics and compliance world on these critically important issues.
