Vernā Myers Joins Netflix as Vice President, Inclusion Strategy
Dear Clients, Colleagues, Supporters & Friends,
When I opened The Vernā Myers Company twenty years ago, my goal was to help our clients become more inclusive and diverse. We dedicated ourselves to working with organizations that shared our vision. It is with great pride that I can say each and everyone of you fit that description, enabling us to all grow together.
Those of you who know me well know how much I love this work, and believe that I must do the most good possible with what I have been given. I want to change the world for the better! With that intention firmly in my mind and heart, I’m excited to tell you that I’ve taken a new opportunity. Starting October 8th, I will be joining one of our clients, Netflix, as Vice President, Inclusion Strategy. Cristina Hernandez of our company will also be joining me at Netflix. Netflix just sent out a press release regarding this, but I wanted you as part of the TVMC family to hear this directly from me.
I am so excited to be part of such a fantastic team at Netflix, but am also mindful of the fact that I will no longer be able to work personally with all of you.
While I’ll be exclusively with Netflix, our company’s educational platform, TVMC-U, will remain up and running with videos on unconscious bias, leadership, hiring, and other topics. You will hear more about our plans for the platform over the next several weeks.
The most important thing I feel is gratitude and love. You have all taken such bold steps towards creating inclusion in our workplaces and world. And it has made a difference. We must continue to work together by talking boldly about the world we live in and making everyone know they belong. Please know that without your hard work and support – and the incomparable work of my incredible team at TVMC – this new venture with Netflix would not be possible.
Never forget, “Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance.”®️ Please keep dancing, and please keep in touch. I value each of you and want to make sure we stay a part of each other’s lives.
With Gratitude, Respect & Wishes of Peace,
