Member Accolades

Suheily Natal Davis

McDonald's USA

Suheily Natal Davis will be joining the Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion team as the Senior Director, GDEI – McDonald’s USA. 

Suheily has a long history of advocating for inclusion in all spaces and has been at McDonald’s in the Legal Department for over 6 years.  During that time, she has chaired the Legal Department’s D&I Committee and had great success in implementing the Mansfield Rule and other key initiatives, including spearheading the department’s launch of a new supplier diversity award which will recognize law firms that are being innovative in their attempts to recruit, retain, and advance diverse talent.

Prior to stepping into her current role as legal counsel for our Latin American Markets, Suheily was Senior Counsel on McDonald’s Global Labor & Employment team.  In that capacity, she helped manage employment litigation and provided advice and counsel on a range of employee issues impacting field, restaurant and corporate employees, eventually becoming the East Division Labor & Employment lead. Throughout the years Suheily has been a tremendous partner to our department, our function and to all of our teams.

Suheily serves on several boards focused on the diversity within the legal profession and at her undergraduate and graduate alma mater (University of Illinois and DePaul University).  In 2017, she was also recognized by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin as one of the top 40 attorneys under 40 in Chicago.

In her new role, Suheily will partner with McDonald’s US Leadership Team and the US HR Team to drive our strategic diversity initiatives within  the US focused on empowering our culture of inclusion and belonging within our restaurants.  She will begin her new role in January and will be reporting into me directly.

Suheily and her husband George also keep busy with their own non-profit, The Perfect Cadence, which provides support for Chicago-area families expecting babies and experiencing financial need.  The couple live on the West Side of Chicago with their two children, William and Marley.
