Meanwhile, Valerie Amante, vice president and head of Global General Counsel and Ethics, said that women executives flourish and excel in the organization since they are not recognized as “women leaders,” but as leaders.

I am also a person with disability. Just like gender, this has never been a point of discussion. It is always about merit,
