IM Diversity Champion Award
One of the largest challenges we face in our industry is attracting, developing, and retaining talent. Today, women represent less than 10% of the work force with an even smaller percentage in senior leadership roles.
We were delighted to announce, at Datacloud Europe, that Rob Roy (CEO Switch) had been selected to receive the first Infrastructure Masons Diversity Champion Award for the outstanding work done to enable career opportunities for women.
A key criteria in the selection of the winner was evidence of leading by example and achieving tangible and sustained results. Rob’s demonstrable efforts to champion opportunities for women, especially in leadership roles at Switch, is unparalleled. The gender diversity of the Switch executive team, especially in critical C-level, Vice President, and Director roles with tenures exceeding 10 years, speaks for itself.
Rob was unable to attend the Datacloud Awards Ceremony. Dr. Terri Simpkin (iMasons Advisory Council Member) accepted the award on his behalf.
On behalf of iMasons and the industry, we want to thank Rob for his leadership and congratulate him on this extraordinary achievement.
