USA, Jul 8, 2024

Troy, Mich., July 8, 2024 — Logicalis, the leading global technology service provider, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Charissa Jaganath, Global Head of Responsible Business, as a 2024 Inclusive Channel Leader. In its second year, the list recognizes executives from vendor, distributor, and solution provider organizations who are dedicated to making a positive impact across the IT channel through inclusive leadership. CRN also honored Jaganath on the list last year. For 2024, she was recognized for her ongoing efforts to influence inclusivity at Logicalis through various employee resource groups, including Logicalis’ Global Inclusion Council and her all-women responsible business team. 

The CRN 2024 Inclusive Channel Leaders honorees are passionate about advancing equity and diversity within their organizations, the channel, and across the greater technology industry. With this recognition, CRN highlights these executives for their desire to foster inclusion and belonging.

“I’m passionate about fostering inclusion and am honored to once again be recognized by CRN for my efforts at Logicalis,” said Jaganath. “Growing up as a South African woman of color and witnessing the country’s first democratic election, as well as the profound impact of inclusivity movements worldwide, has played a significant role in my outlook. I hope that my efforts continue to show Logicalis employees that they deserve to be heard and have their needs met, including in the workplace.”

With over 15 years of experience in global corporations and nonprofits, Jaganath leads various DE&I efforts across Logicalis. This includes her role as co-chair of Logicalis’ Global Inclusion Council, which helps to support strategies aligned with DE&I initiatives at Logicalis, including increasing the number of women in leadership roles, encouraging more diverse employee recruitment, and strengthening efforts surrounding employee DE&I training. She has also worked to grow her all-women responsible business team, a group dedicated to aligning their initiatives with Logicalis’ overall strategy. The team has activated various events focused on women and girls in technology, as well as supported three employee groups dedicated to the LGBTQIA+ community, APAC women, and employees with disabilities. 

“We are proud to recognize this year’s honorees for their commitment to inclusivity across the channel. With their transparent leadership, they help create welcoming environments where employees can bring their best selves to work to help their business succeed,” said Jennifer Follett, VP, U.S. Content, and Executive Editor, CRN, The Channel Company. “Congratulations to these leaders for their deep dedication to bringing greater equity to the channel. We look forward to learning from their inclusive leadership and seeing what they achieve next.”   

The 2024 Inclusive Channel Leaders list will be featured in the August issue of CRN Magazine, with online coverage starting July 8 at www.CRN.com/Inclusive-Leaders.
