Infrastructure Masons Appoints Hannah Ormondroyd as Chair of Diversity and Inclusion Committee
The mission of iMasons is to Unite the Builders of the Digital Age by creating the platform for members to connect, grow and give back. The association’s current priority is to bridge the talent gap by raising awareness, education, D&I and Sustainability.
“We are thrilled that Hannah Ormondroyd has accepted the Chair position for the iMasons Global D&I Committee. Her broad experience, proven leadership, and passion for D&I will help steer our strategy and guide our Member Resource Group (MRG) Chairs & Vice-Chairs”
Dean Nelson – Founder and Chairman of iMasons
Hannah is Head of People at CBRE Data Centre Solutions and brings over 15 years of experience and passion for D&I to the role. Hannah has a strong track record of successfully delivering strategies and training that drive inclusive and effective workplaces. Most recently, she played a key role at the iM 2019 D&I Gala in Monaco (where CBRE were the main D&I Partner) providing a keynote speech and helped raise significant funds for the iM Scholarship Program – 100% going to scholarships for women.
Hannah’s role as Chair of the D&I Committee will be to steer and coordinate the activities of the newly formed iM Member Resource Groups (MRGs) – iM Women, Millennials, Veterans, and Hispanic/LatinX – with other MRGs to be added in the future.
The MRGs aim to:
- Create a community where members feel a sense of belonging and can be their authentic self.
- Provide input and guidance to IM Leadership and highlight the value and advantage of diversity.
- Raise the visibility of the community within the industry.
- Develop a network with IM members.
“It is an honor to chair the Infrastructure Masons Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which will enrich the data centre and digital infrastructure community,” said Ormondroyd. “I am looking forward to working with Dean Nelson and the board to be representative of the iM members and build a more inclusive and diverse workplace to keep us innovating.” Hannah Ormondroyd – Chair of iMasons D&I Committee.
