Board Member Spotlight: Alice Nelson-Sidibe

Meet Alice. Director, DE&I Integration for Talent & Learning at Comcast

What do you love most about your job?

The best part of my role is that it allows me the opportunity to have the broad and long view of the impact of DE&I across the organization. Using that view, I am able to connect the best and brightest in the DE&I space and give a voice to those that may not be involved on a daily basis to help things make sense.

How have other women helped shape your career?

First and foremost, my grandmother helped to shape who I wanted to be as a woman and a leader. She was transparent, loving, and held me accountable to our agreements. After her, it was the women that I was exposed to throughout my career. I can never name them all, but some stand out for me. The division President at ARAMARK that tapped me on the shoulder and asked me the question “So, now you have an MBA, what are you going to do with it?” It was a professional and personal wake-up call that now something more was expected of me. Then she proceeded to offer me a project that I felt I wasn’t qualified for, but she believed in me, connected me with other women who could support me which helped me fight against imposter syndrome. It was the women of HR in Comcast who took the time to have informal coffee meetups with me and share their experiences, transparently and with an eye towards how I can grow professionally. It was the facilitators and participants of WICT’s Executive Development Series: Leading with Power and Authenticity that further helped me develop my professional voice, not another’s voice, and feel empowered to use it. It was very first formal mentor that I connected with through the WICT Network Mentor program, who to this day is a confidant, encourager and friend.

Outside of work, what’s something you are passionate about?

Outside of work, I am passionate about serving. Whether its as a board member helping to direct and consult the experience of an underserved community or serving my family as a wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, and grandmom. I believe that people are placed in our lives for a reason, and we have to try and serve one another as best we can.

What do you value most about your membership with The WICT Network?

I most value the connections, friendships, mentors and mentees that the WICT Network has allowed me to develop. The women and men of the WICT Network welcome you with open arms and invite you in to become who you want to be or go where you want you want to go in your career.
