ORLANDO, Fla. Oct. 4, 2023 — Sami Jenkins is among the honorees on the third annual Channel Futures DE&I 101 list. The list recognizes individuals who are driving diversity, equity and inclusion in the communications and technology channel through their words, actions and leadership.
"I am honored to be acknowledged alongside fellow thought leaders who are actively championing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the IT workforce," saidd Sami Jenkins, COO, and Co-founder of ThreatLocker. "ThreatLocker remains committed to fostering the growth of our local community and cultivating diversity among IT visionaries, leaders, and innovators. We have nurtured a culture that encourages innovative thinking, and I am optimistic about our continued efforts to make a positive impact."
The Channel Futures DE&I 101 list was created to spotlight the efforts of dedicated and determined individuals working to eliminate discrimination in the industry. Many of these individuals work behind the scenes and too often their efforts go unacknowledged.
“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.
