New York – August 9, 2021: Channel Futures today announced that Sally A. Brandtneris, CFO of Logicalis US, has been honored on its inaugural Channel Futures DE&I 101 list. Brandtneris is among those recognized from a wide spectrum of multicultural backgrounds who are driving diversity, equity and inclusion in the technology channel through their words, actions and leadership.
With a passion for promoting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) initiatives, Brandtneris works closely with the Logicalis US executive team to ensure DE&I remains at the forefront of Logicalis’ overall corporate strategy. She serves as the executive sponsor of the company’s nationwide DE&I initiatives, and represents Logicalis US as a member of the organization’s global DE&I program. Additionally,
Brandtneris is a board member of the Arizona Women’s Forum and has been active in her local Phoenix 50/50 Women on Boards chapter.
“The technology industry is one of the most innovative spaces, but true innovation is not possible without diverse voices,” said Brandtneris. “Creating an inclusive, equitable environment within Logicalis is a strategic priority. I look forward to continuing my work with the executive team to ensure we incorporate DE&I practices and values in everything that we do to foster innovation and inclusivity. It is an honor to be recognized as a leader in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion by Channel Futures.”
The Channel Futures DE&I 101 list was created to spotlight the dedicated and determined individuals working to eliminate discrimination in the industry. The need for DE&I has been acknowledged in the information and communications industries for many years. But while any number of tech organizations have received attention for the DE&I programs they’ve launched, it’s the people at the grassroots level who get things started and keep the momentum going. And too often their efforts go unacknowledged.
“The publication of this list represents a milestone for the industry and channel in raising the visibility of individuals who are truly at the center of change in the industry,” said Robert DeMarzo, vice president of content, Informa Tech Channels. “These individuals are propelling their organizations forward when it comes to innovation, business growth and customer/supplier connections. The Channel Futures team is proud of its role in bringing this list, spearheaded by Managing Editor Buffy Naylor, to market recognizing such a great group of individuals.”
“It’s been proven that a diverse workforce can make a company more innovative, productive and profitable,” said Kelly Danziger, general manager, Informa Tech Channels. “Our industry is constantly evolving to keep pace with advances in information and communications technologies and the workplace structure. It’s essential that the industry and the channel also evolve in step with the workplace demographics. Beyond making good business sense, it’s the right thing to do.”
