Imagine a room with 4,000 people from every state and 40 other nations. It’s a giant room which intersects many ages, genders, races, abilities and ethnicities along with a diverse range of talents, experience and professions.

When I joined Clorox in 1988, coming out as a gay man was the furthest thing from my mind.
