TROY, Mich., Sept. 28, 2023 -- Leading technology solutions provider Logicalis today announced that Charissa Jaganath, Global Head of Responsible Business, is among the honorees on the third annual Channel Futures DE&I 101 list. The list recognizes individuals from a wide spectrum of multicultural backgrounds who are driving diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the communications and technology channel through their words, actions and leadership.
"Inclusivity is a core part of my personal and professional philosophy, shaped by experiences I had as a young woman of color in post-apartheid South Africa," said Jaganath. "I am honored each day to bring that focus into my work with Logicalis, and to have an opportunity to create change in my organization as well as the broader technology sector."
The Channel Futures DE&I 101 list spotlights the efforts of dedicated and determined individuals working to eliminate discrimination in the industry. Jaganath was recognized for her role shaping the global Logicalis responsible business approach and bringing DE&I to the center of that strategy. She joined Logicalis in March 2021 and since then has been instrumental in leading initiatives to increase diversity in the company. Her efforts have directly helped increase the number of women in global leadership roles, drive diverse employee recruitment, and advanced employee DE&I training.
"DE&I work requires levels of dedication and determination that many people do not possess," said Kelly Danziger, general manager, Informa Tech Channels. "But as anyone on this list can tell you, the work is as rewarding as it is hard. We are pleased to be able to recognize these individuals and, hopefully, amplify their efforts."
"DE&I is alive and well in the channel," said Robert DeMarzo, vice president of content, Informa Tech Channels. "This year we received more nominations than ever before and learned of some remarkable achievements that should be celebrated."
Nominations for the DE&I 101 list were solicited on the Channel Futures website and through social media. Between April 12 and July 14, individuals could nominate themselves or others for the list. Applications were open to managers, leaders and individual contributors. All submissions were reviewed by members of the Channel Futures editorial team with input from advisory board members.
