In light of Juneteenth and GovCon’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, WashingtonExec is excited to celebrate and recognize those championing DE&I efforts in industry and beyond. These executives have been driving diversity within their organizations during a pandemic, and amid an increasingly politically and racially divided country. It’s so important now, more than ever, to create an inclusive community, to advocate for diversity of people and perspective, and for companies to represent these sentiments inside and outside their organizations.
In WashingtonExec’s first Top DE&I Execs to Watch in 2022 list, we highlight the — in most cases — newly formed roles and responsibilities of those in charge of driving real, impactful change. These chief diversity officers, directors and vice presidents of DE&I; human resource professionals and leaders of DE&I initiatives are ensuring their organizations are putting in the meaningful work to create truly inclusive environments for all employees and prospects.
