Sanofi’s Cristina Santos on How to Become a High Potential

During the DiversityInc 2019 Top 50 Companies for Diversity event in New York City on May 7, Cristina Santos, Head of Inclusion & Diversity and EEO at Sanofi, addressed how to get noticed, how to get promoted, what are lateral moves, what to do when you don’t get the promotion and  understanding the differences between a high performer and a high potential.

“High performers know the job, high potentials know the business. If you are high potential, you need to have that curiosity and interest for the big picture,” Santos told the crowd.

At her job, Santos establishes, evolves, and executes enterprise-wide I&D strategy — driving results through strong communication skills and a strategic mindset. Santos works with a range of internal partners to support diverse talent and drive performance. She oversees the Employee Resource Groups and tries to improve Sanofi through efforts focused on commerce, culture, community, and careers.

“Being a high potential and reliably rocking in every role, means you’re going to show up and your presence is going to have an impact on those around you. When a high potential is on the team, it boosts the performance of those around you by about 15 percent,” Santos said.
