Managing Counsel, Nestle USA, Inc.

With both a JD and an MBA (Finance) from the University of San Francisco, Daniel Nugent joined Nestle USA in 2013 after nearly a decade at Nissan North America. Nestle USA's commitment to diversity and inclusion ranges from a policy of gender balance (43 percent of managerial roles are now held by women) to cultural agility, cross-generational leadership, and empowering LGBT+ communities in the workplace. 

As part of LCLD's Leaders at the Front initiative, Dan created a Leader's Pledge detailing his personal and organizational commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Read Dan's pledge here
