Speaker Bio:

Derrick Nelson is the Assistant Vice President, Corporate Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) Manager for Commerce Bank. Derrick drives the I&D strategy through education on key topics, such as inclusive leadership and unconscious bias.  He leverages a strong network of diversity professionals and organizations, such as the Kansas City Diversity & Inclusion Consortium (which he helped co-found), COCAbiz, and Diversity Awareness Partners (DAP) to stay current on trends impacting business communities.  He is responsible for guiding and leading Employee Resource Groups and Inclusion and Diversity Councils at Commerce Bank. These initiatives are designed to improve diversity representation while growing a culture of inclusion throughout the organization by advancing education, awareness and celebration objectives. Derrick engages collaboratively with leaders and team members at all levels across the organization to advance an inclusive and diverse culture, energize the workplace, and ignite innovation. Additionally, Derrick leads many of the company's internal and external outreach efforts by representing Commerce Bank at diversity and cultural events throughout Commerce Bank’s multi-state footprint. 

Derrick currently sits on three non-profit boards:  Center for Developmentally Disabled, Disability: IN Greater Kansas City, and Workforce Partnership of Kansas
