Pride and Prejudice Interview with Tony Tenicela of IBM | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising |

Diversity is my passion and it is an integral part of who I am. From an early age, I was exposed to different cultures, languages, customs, and beliefs being encouraged by my parents to see these differences as energizing, engaging, and ultimately freeing. Embracing the “other” in the world enabled me to ultimately embrace my own sense of self –to accept and nurture my own differences. As a result, when I joined IBM back in 1996, I was an openly gay Hispanic man with a drive for making an impact.
