SIA is still accepting nominations for the 2023 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Influencers — US and Canada list.

This is the third year for the DE&I Influencers list, which recognizes professionals who are leading the charge to create opportunities for the historically excluded communities in the workforce solutions ecosystem.

The list is not a ranking and will be based on the nominations. Whom should you be nominating? We are looking for people who have made a demonstrable influence on our ecosystem. A DE&I Influencer is one who is having tough conversations about race, gender and equality, challenging others to think differently and developing initiatives to drive change.

The list is open to individuals in all corners of the workforce solutions ecosystem, from buyers of staffing services and staffing firms to VMS/MSP/RPO providers, talent platform firms and vendors.

Those making nominations should be prepared to include examples of ways their nominees are speaking out and working on DE&I and how those conversations and initiatives are changing attitudes or have effected change. Be prepared to articulate the degree of impact and the repeatability/scalability of efforts made. The duration as well as recent results of the nominee’s efforts will also be factored into list inclusion. Please focus on results from the past 12 months.

Nominations are accepted through March 10. Self nominations are welcome. The list will be published in the May/June 2023 issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine, and profiles will be available online.

The 2022 list is online. Nominate yourself or a colleague by March 10.
