The

Diversity Center of northeast ohio It is my pleasure to welcome you to The Diversity Center’s 67th Annual Humanitarian Award Celebration. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for your ongoing friendship, support and encouragement. For nearly 100 years, The Diversity Center has been committed to making Northeast Ohio a diverse, equitable and inclusive community. Our programs benefit thousands of young people and professionals in Northeast Ohio by building cultural competency, leadership skills and creating inclusive school environments. At every point in our history, The Diversity Center has faced challenges. The challenges, and even organized opposition, continue today, for us and for every organization committed to social justice. This past year reminds us that achieving diversity and inclusion is hard work that takes commitment, courage and all of us banding together. Tonight, we celebrate the incredible dedication of Craig Arnold, Andrew Berry and the Cleveland Browns Organization to this noble cause. This year’s Honorees have led and taken action to create real and lasting change. They exemplify how celebrating our differences, makes us all stronger – in our workplaces, classrooms and across our community. I want to thank our Honorary Celebration Co-Chairs, Chris Connor, Bill Lacey and Dee and Jimmy Haslam, and the Honorary Celebration Committee members who helped to make this event so successful. I especially want to thank our Board Co-Chairs, Tracie M. Longpre and Rob Soroka, for their incredible work over the last several months. Finally, a sincere thank you to our President and CEO, Peggy Zone Fisher, and to the staff of The Diversity Center. This event could not have happened without your hard work and dedication. Now more than ever, The Diversity Center believes in the value and power of inclusion and diversity. Now more than ever, we remain committed to striving for equity, justice, inclusion and diversity in Northeast Ohio. And now more than ever, we need your help to bring about fundamental and lasting change. My sincere thanks for your support.

The

Diversity Center of northeast ohio Welcome to the Diversity Center’s 67th Annual Humanitarian Award Celebration. Our sincere thanks to our Honorary Celebration Co-chairs Chris Connor, William Lacey and Dee and Jimmy Haslam, Board Celebration Co-chairs Tracie M. Longpre and Rob Soroka, Master of Ceremonies Russ Mitchell, our generous Sponsors, our remarkable staff, and our dedicated Board led by our extraordinary Chair, Cip Beredo. We are especially proud to honor our 2021 Humanitarian Award recipients, Craig Arnold and Andrew Berry. Each of them has advanced diversity and inclusion across Northeast Ohio through their exemplary civic, charitable, and professional leadership. Thank you Craig and Andrew for allowing us to honor you this evening. The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio is the only organization in Ohio with a mission focused solely on directly addressing and eliminating bias, bigotry, intolerance, and racism and creating communities where all people are connected, respected and valued. Although we are in difficult times, I am moved by the ways in which we have adapted, innovated and have continued to develop and grow. The increased demand for our programming, combined with the generosity of people and organizations like you, has allowed us to expand our programming and reach more students and educators than ever before. Our programs help more than 14,000 children, teens, and young adults in 11 counties each year embrace their differences and become change agents in their schools and communities. We also train educators to create learning environments that promote respect, acceptance and inclusion. Most importantly, without the support of each of you, our extraordinary work would not be possible. With deep appreciation,

Peggy Zone Fisher President & CEO

ABOUT THE DIVERSITY CENTER The

Diversity Center of northeast ohio

The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio was founded in 1927 as the National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ). Our mission is to eliminate bias, bigotry and racism. We are the premier organization in our region offering comprehensive diversity, equity and inclusion training. The Diversity Center is a member of the National Federation for Just Communities. Each year, our combined programs touch more than 16,000 people in 11 counties throughout Northeast Ohio. Our goal is to help individuals and organizations recognize, understand, appreciate, leverage and celebrate diversity.

OPENING MINDS WITH SCHOOL & YOUTH PROGRAMS

The Diversity Center’s student programs promote understanding, respect and inclusion through facilitated conversations, simulations and hands-on activities. YouLEAD (6-12) and YouLEAD Junior (K-2 and 3-5) are our premiere on-site student leadership programs. Grounded in Social and Emotional Learning, these series of workshops promote the development of self and social awareness, relationship skills, self-management, responsible decision making, and action.

• YouLEAD and YouLEAD Junior workshops are ageappropriate, interactive and designed to encourage students to engage with peers, and create dialogue around various diversity and inclusion topics. We offer both on site and virtual elementary, middle and high school programs. • Middle and High School Conferences bring together groups of students and educators from diverse backgrounds to participate in a series of interactive, facilitated workshops and to share personal stories. Additionally, we are honored to partner with Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) and other local nonprofits for the Conflict Resolution Youth Symposium each spring to facilitate educator and youth programming. • Diversity Through the Arts integrates musical, visual, theatrical, and English language arts with lessons on inclusiveness and communication skills to promote creativity and leadership. • Workshops for Educators and Youth Serving Adults works with schools and youth-serving nonprofits to foster healthy learning communities, and create classrooms where all are connected, respected and valued. We also provide strategic planning, one on one and group coaching, and consultation on developing inclusive and equitable policies and procedures. • Culture and Climate Survey A school’s culture and climate reflect the behaviors, interactions, attitudes, norms, and perceptions within the school. As a way of gathering data on the climate for diversity, equity and inclusion, The Diversity Center utilizes an anonymous online platform to gather participant feedback data. This data is then analyzed and compiled into an analysis report, which gives insight for next steps. • Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Leader The Diversity Center is available to partner with your school district on a deep and ongoing basis by integrating our team of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion experts into your district on a full-time basis (equivalent to 187 school days or 1496 hours). Participation in this program includes access to skilled experts within the JEDI field, each of whom specialize in working with different age ranges around these topics. This relationship will include a JEDI Leader, who will be responsible for the overall project and will serve as a convener of all other experts. Districts will gain access to workshop

customization and facilitation, crisis response, individual coaching sessions, data collection and much more.

CHANGING LIVES WITH PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & SUPPORT

• LeadDIVERSITY brings together a select group of professionals to engage with regional leaders and the greater community in order to raise participants’ awareness of diversity issues, build their leadership skills and provide them with a tool kit to be advocates for diversity and inclusion. • SHIFT Consulting is the professional services division of The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio. We work with your organization to SHIFT individual behaviors, interpersonal interactions, management practices, procedures, and policies toward inclusion. These practices enable organizations to attract, recruit, engage, and retain the world’s best talent. Through our partnerships with business and community leaders, we support the development of inclusive work environments where all feel connected, respected and valued.

BUILDING STRONGER COMMUNITIES

• The Annual Humanitarian Award Dinner Celebration Since 1949, The Diversity Center has honored stellar individuals who have delivered exemplary leadership in civic, charitable and professional organizations. Our honorees have profoundly advanced Northeast Ohio as a diverse and inclusive community. • The Walk, Rock & Run is Northeast Ohio’s largest diversity celebration that brings people together at The Great Lakes Science Center, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and USS COD to celebrate diversity in Northeast Ohio with a day of family fun and entertainment, along with a 1- and 3-mile walk and a 5k run. This event will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2022. • Through Community Engagement, The Diversity Center partners with local organizations, nonprofits and government agencies to provide strategic and thoughtful leadership on issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

The Diversity Center of northeast ohio 2021 PwC LeadDIVERSITY ALUMNI AWARD Rebecca Scina

A

s our 16th recipient of the LeadDIVERSITY Alumni Award, Rebecca Scina is a Cloud Delivery Manager at Hyland, where she is the President and Founder of the Hyland Pride Alliance, an employee resource group dedicated to supporting LGBTQIA+ employees and their families. Founded in 2017, Hyland Pride Alliance’s mission is to strengthen Hyland’s active, inclusive culture to retain and attract LGBT+ talent and provide a network of support for Hylanders, their families and allies. We also promote LGBT+ awareness and create a safe and supportive forum for discussing LGBT+ issues. We want Hyland employees to express, embrace and explore their organization’s core values and their impact within the entire community. This means creating a lasting and positive impact both within Hyland and our local communities through education, outreach, and positive reaction with group members and non-group members alike. With the assistance of HPA Executive Sponsor & Chief People Officer, Debbie Connelly, Rebecca’s most recent accomplishments include Hyland being on the HRC Corporate Equality Index as well as serving as co-captain for the Annual Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio’s Walk, Rock and Run. Rebecca has been with Hyland since 2008 and has more than five years of experience cultivating environments for more diverse and inclusive workplaces. Challenging her leadership and project management skills, the LeadDIVERSITY program needed to pivot from an exclusively in-person curriculum to completely virtual back in February/March 2020. Not only did she calmly and successfully manage the LeadDIVERISTY class project, she also provided an immediate solution for The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio to seamlessly transition to virtual sessions by providing the use of her Zoom meeting technology and scheduling all virtual class meeting invites so the course could continue without interruption. In addition to that, she also helped organize virtual Zoom happy hours so the class could continue the social aspects and benefits of being in LeadDIVERSITY. Rebecca is passionately involved in and supportive of local organizations such as Plexus Cleveland’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce and the LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland. She is pursuing deeper partnerships with PFLAG and Human Rights Campaign (HRC). One upcoming project that she is very interested in is the Studio West 117 initiative. As one of six children, and a twin, Rebecca was the first in her family to start school and graduate from college without taking any breaks. She graduated from The College of Wooster in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Studio Art/Graphic Design. She came back to Cleveland two years later to work for Hyland. She lives in Seven Hills with her wife Kelly and their Great Dane, Sebastian. LeadDIVERSITY: Rebecca’s drive in life is centered around helping others. Seeing others succeed and flourish is what motivates Rebecca to do the important work of furthering the benefits and rights of members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Hyland has supported Rebecca and her team with celebrating programming and opportunities for employees to connect and form a true sense of community. She is passionate about providing a platform for members of the LGBTQIA+ community to share their voices and experiences. The LeadDIVERSITY program and The Diversity Center has shaped the way Rebecca approaches professional and personal life. She continues to leverage what the LeadDIVERSITY class taught her as she expands the Hyland Pride Alliance globally.

Andrew Berry

EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS AND GENERAL MANAGER, CLEVELAND BROWNS AND THE CLEVELAND BROWNS ORGANIZATION

A

ndrew Berry was named the Browns Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager on January 28, 2020. Berry rejoined the Browns staff after serving as Vice President of Player Personnel from 2016 to 2018. In his first season at the helm, Berry shaped a roster that helped the team to their first playoff appearance since 2002 and first playoff victory in 26 years. Berry used an aggressive approach to improve the roster during his first offseason, including inking DE Myles Garrett to a five-year contract extension and signing unrestricted free agent RT Jack Conklin. Both Garrett and Conklin went on to earn first-team All-Pro honors in 2020, while G Joel Bitonio and G Wyatt Teller were each second team selections. Berry also drafted offensive tackle Jedrick Wills in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Wills made a successful transition from right tackle to left and earned All-Rookie Team Honors from the Pro Football Writers Association.

This past offseason, the Browns signed six unrestricted free agents, including standout S John Johnson III and former first round picks DE Jadeveon Clowney and DE Takkarist McKinley. During the 2021 NFL Draft the Browns added eight players, including first-round pick CB Greg Newsome. In his first stint with the Browns, Berry first worked under Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown followed by General Manager John Dorsey. He helped lead all talent evaluation efforts for the club, including college prospects and NFL free agents. He also helped in overseeing the club’s scouting department and worked closely with other high-ranking members of the front office. During Berry’s first three drafts with the

12

www.diversitycenterneo.org

Browns, the team selected at least one future Pro Bowler every year: LB Joe Schobert (fourth round, 2016), DE Myles Garrett (first round, 2017), CB Denzel Ward (first round, 2018) and RB Nick Chubb (second round, 2018). In between his stints with the Browns, Berry served as the Vice President of Football Operations with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019. In his one draft with the Eagles, Philadelphia used a second-round pick on RB Miles Sanders, who went on to lead all NFL rookies in scrimmage yards with 1,327 and set an Eagles rookie rushing record with 818 yards. Berry also spent seven seasons (2009 to 2015) in the Indianapolis Colts front office, including his final four as pro scouting coordinator. He started with the Colts in 2009 as a scouting assistant and was promoted to pro scout in 2011 before being elevated to pro scouting coordinator in 2012. During his time in Indianapolis, the Colts won four AFC South titles, made five postseason appearances and advanced to Super Bowl XLIV. From 2009-15, Indianapolis won 67 games, the sixth-most in the NFL during that span. In the Colts’ front office, Berry managed the free agency process, scouted upcoming opponents and evaluated NFL players and players from other professional leagues. He also assisted with college scouting, preparation for the NFL draft and participated in contract negotiations during free agency. Berry graduated cum laude from Harvard University with a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master’s degree in computer science in four years. While at Harvard, he was a four-year starter as a cornerback and was a three-time All-Ivy League team selection and an All-America honoree. He

totaled 125 career tackles and five interceptions playing for the Crimson. Berry was one of five finalists for the John Wooden Citizenship Cup, which is awarded to the nation’s highest-achieving student-athlete who best displays character, teamwork and citizenship. He was a finalist for the Draddy Trophy as the national scholar-athlete of the year and was named the 2009 Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Director Association Scholar-Athlete of the Year. In June 2020, Berry sparked the #BeTheSolution campaign to emphasize education and encourage others to implement action for ending social and racial injustice practices. Berry created the challenge internally with an email to the Browns organization and donated $8,460 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund for efforts after at least 50 employees completed one of the following in honor of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many more who tragically lost their lives: 1. Spend at least 8 minutes and 46 seconds (in honor of Floyd) on one of a number of educational or dialogue items provided in the email and submit a short written or video reflection on what they learned or will do moving forward. 2. Sign up for any social activism initiative. 3. Donate anything to a social activism cause. The Haslam family pledged to match every dollar raised and contributed to the organizations of employees’ choice to a social justice nonprofit. The Browns staff raised more than $185,000 in a two-week span for 14 different charities. Berry later invited fans, players and members of the media to join in the fight to #BeTheSolution. Berry and his wife Brittan have two boys, Zion and Kairo and a girl, Eden Ruth.
