As head of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force, Danielle Lester, senior counsel for Little Caesars, plays a critical role in fostering greater inclusion and understanding across all Ilitch companies.
Danielle, a metro Detroit native, has a broad legal education, having received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Michigan, her J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law and her Master of Business Administration from Michigan State University — The Eli Broad School of Management. Her diverse education allows her to give legal counsel on a range of issues and, along with her personal experiences as a Black woman in corporate America, informs her work on the task force.
“Danielle Lester has been an incredibly strong leader in our organization” said Erin Martin, Little Caesars Vice President and General Counsel. “She’s focused on the things that matter to our colleagues and also to the success of our company.”
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force, composed of colleagues from across the Ilitch companies was created to give recommendations on diversity and inclusion policies, programs and practices.
Danielle and the other task force members continue to identify opportunities that encourage ongoing, meaningful dialogue about diversity, equity and inclusion within the organization.
