Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc. has appointed industry veteran Duane La Bom as their Chief Diversity Officer to drive their global diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategy.

La Bom will be responsible for introducing new programmes that foster an inclusive workplace environment and ensure the Cornerstone team is contributing to lasting, cultural change.

In this role, La Bom will head the company’s Diversity Leadership Council to evaluate its people practices and partner closely with leaders across the organisation to reshape programmes and open lines of communication.

La Bom joins Cornerstone as a seasoned leader in the DEI space. He brings nearly 20 years of experience leading successful HR and DEI programmes at both emerging, high-growth organisations and established Fortune 100 companies. Most recently, he was the Executive Director of Global Diversity & Inclusion for Texas Instruments. Before that, he was the Chief Diversity Officer and VP of Talent Management for Andeavor.
