Sherri Carter oversees a building and team that manufactures critical medicine. All while she does her part to promote greater diversity and inclusion by mentoring and nurturing talent. AbbVie followed Sherri during a typical day in the life of an AbbVie employee driving change around the clock.
During the one-on-one I work with my staff member on developing their value statement, which defines how they’re adding value to the organization. Having a strong value statement can help people form a different, more meaningful connection to the work that they’re doing, which is key to helping them stay engaged and motivated to get out of that comfort zone. I’m proud I get to help people connect to their work in a more meaningful way – it’s not technical, it’s not engineering, but it is critical.
