“The need for DE&I has been acknowledged in the ICT industry for many years,” stated a spokesperson for Channel Futures. “And while any number of tech organizations have received attention for the DE&I programs they’ve launched, it’s the people at the grassroots level who get things started and keep the momentum going. Our list is intended to turn a spotlight on those people. People who are impacting the industry.”
Channel Futures DE&I 101 recognizes individuals from diverse and multicultural backgrounds who are driving diversity, equity and inclusion in the ICT channel through their words, actions and leadership.
“By highlighting one hundred and one diverse and multicultural leaders in our channel, Channel Futures is helping to drive the channel forward,” said Scully. “Together with Mailprotector, we aim to build a strong, supportive and collaborative IT community. Diverse backgrounds in our channel make for unique ideas and that results in a stronger channel.”
According to Channel Futures, this list represents a milestone for the ICT industry and channel in raising the visibility of individuals who are truly at the center of change in the industry. Individuals can self-nominate or be nominated by others. All submitted names were carefully reviewed by a panel of Channel Futures team members. The Channel Futures DE&I 101 is a list, not a ranking. The final list represents the best of the best.
