SIA Recognizes Workforce Solutions Professionals Making a Difference
New York, NY, May 18, 2022 – LevelUP Human Capital Solutions (HCS), an international provider of customized talent solutions, is proud to announce its sponsorship of SIA’s annual DE&I (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Influencers list recognizing 47 individuals from across the workforce solutions ecosystem who stand out in their actions and commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their organizations and communities. Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) is the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, and plays a central role in informing, connecting, and elevating the ecosystem.
The DE&I Influencers list honors professionals, executives, and leaders from the US and Canada whose hard work is moving the workforce solutions ecosystem in the right direction and creating needed change. These honorees are helping to close the opportunity gap for varied diverse communities including BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women and working mothers, military veterans, and spouses, neurodiverse, disabled, and the formerly incarcerated. Organizations across the world need to do more than pay lip service; they need to keep the issues of diversity, belonging, fair treatment of workers, equal pay, hiring bias, discrimination, and racism at the forefront. These Influencers are leading the charge.
"Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a key value pillar at LevelUP. Only through building a diverse workforce and leveraging a wide range of perspectives, have we been able to bring the best solutions to our clients," said Curtis Grajeda, Founder of LevelUP HCS. "This year, we are honored to be featured alongside other DE&I-centric organizations who are striving to influence meaningful and sustainable change in the industries they serve."
“The 2022 DE&I Influencers continue to do groundbreaking work to reduce the social isolation or lack of belonging that so many minorities — historically excluded and other communities — experience in a variety of ways. Additionally, they are educating the industry on how employers need to rethink their relationships with their workers,” says Subadhra Sriram, editor and publisher, media products at SIA. “We are pleased to feature this august group and give our kudos to them for remaining focused on finding solutions to the DE&I challenges that grip our ecosystem.” The DE&I Influencers website is unveiled this week, featuring the individual influencers and sharing their roles and involvement. Those named to the list also appear in the May/June 2022 issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine. The 2022 DE&I Influencers list is sponsored by companies dedicated to forwarding DE&I.
