Welcome to the 2023 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Influencers — US and Canada list, SIA’s salute to people who have made great strides in advancing diversity in the workforce solutions ecosystem. The 49 people on this year’s list have been passionate advocates for others — including BIPOC, LGBTQ+, neurodiverse, disabled, women and working mothers, and military veterans and spouses — while never shying away from tough conversations on DE&I.
Their efforts are as diverse as the communities they serve. Our honorees have introduced new models, jumpstarted diversity hiring at their own firms or gone out on their own to found firms and organizations that empower those who have been historically excluded. Many evangelize the power of DE&I through public speaking engagements, books or podcasts.
Whether or not they hold roles dedicated to diversity at their companies, the DE&I Influencers have been passionate about bridging opportunity gaps at their companies or externally. Please join us in honoring these leaders.
