What do you feel separates you from the rest of the professionals in your industry?:
Mr. Moore has been an engaged and innovative leader inside his companies and within his communities for his entire career. As a straight, white, older male, his passion for diversity and inclusion is unique among his peers, as is being honored with six diversity awards. Also, he understands organizational cultures because of his high-level service in more than five different careers.
What has been the most outstanding thing you have done thus far in your career?:
His greatest career achievements include leading the Best Practice North Texas Diversity Council for 20 years, the subsequent adoption of those practices across the company, and orchestrating the continued effective working relationships between ERGs.
How would you like to be remembered by your peers?:
He would like to be remembered as an effective, thoughtful, reliable and giving partner who had great ideas, was a joy to work with, got the job done, and was passionate about diversity and inclusion.
If you could solve one problem in the world today, what would it be?:
He would solve the lack of trust within organizations. Mr. Moore believes the bottom line is that, in many cases, business leaders have a lack of trust among the people in their organizations. Since some people are allowed to not treat others fairly and with dignity and respect, it shuts down communication, and reduces diversity of thought. Organizations lose out on the amazing innovative power realized from total engagement of all people.
If you could have lunch with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?:
Mr. Moore would have lunch with Steven M.R. Covey, the author of the book "Speed of Trust." His concept that as trust goes up, speed goes up and cost goes down is so simple but powerful. Mr. Moore would want to gain more insight as to how to convince leaders that they should invest in pursuing the development of more trust among the organization's members.
