International DE&I List Recognizes Influencers in the Ecosystem – Morales Group Included
Mountain View, California — May 17, 2022 — Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, has published its annual list of DE&I (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Influencers, recognizing 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.
Morales Group Senior Outreach Manager Cynthia Hobbs is one of 47 honorees recognized in this international list for her outstanding work in diversity, equity and inclusion in her community and network of outreach organizations.
The 2022 class comprises honorees in the US and Canada who hail from all corners of the workforce solutions ecosystem — staffing suppliers, enterprise buyers and end users of contingent labor, vendors and more. Many of these professionals dedicated much of their careers to the diversity cause long before it became popular. Armed with a variety of tools and lessons learned over the years, 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. They have done what it takes to develop new models, partnerships and training programs and use speaking engagements, podcasts, blogs, workshops and more to illustrate the importance of DE&I — including how to press the movement forward.
“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 Influencer 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 the following companies dedicated to driving DE&I: Glider AI (premium sponsor), Kelly (premium sponsor), Access Capital, ACS Solutions, Beeline, Bullhorn, DISYS/Signature Consultants, LevelUp and Omni Inclusive.
