Episode 1 - Randy Lewis, Retired Senior Vice President, Supply Chain & Logistics at Walgreens
As Senior Vice President Supply Chain and Logistics at Walgreens, Randy Lewis bet his career that he could create an inclusive workplace at one of America’s biggest corporations where people with disabilities could not just succeed but thrive. Randy designed and opened the first distribution facility of its kind to employ a significant number of people with disabilities (more than 40% of the workforce has a cognitive or physical disability.) Drawing inspiration from his autistic son, Randy has become a speaker and author on the topics of incorporating those with disabilities into the workforce.
Randy has created thousands of full-time jobs for people with disabilities. In his book, No Greatness without Goodness, he offers a firsthand account of what it takes to lead with courage in order to change people’s lives for the better. Randy’s motto is “What’s the use of having power if you don’t use it to do good.”
