Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Interview

There’s a need to hire diverse individuals, different backgrounds and so forth, but you have to consider getting the job done, so it’s a tough thing to do.

Bryant is from Springfield, MO, graduated from Mizzou, served 10 years in the Navy, and has worked in various IT positions. These have primarily been manager positions at multiple organizations including the Federal Reserve Bank, Magellan Health Services, and WashU. He learned leadership skills initially in the military and added to his experience at the Federal Reserve Bank. Bryant firmly believes in the chain of command, however acknowledges that his leadership style has changed recently. Transitioning from a very military style, he has mellowed and improved upon his people skills. Bryant also recently celebrated his daughter’s college graduation.
