Hanover, Md. (May 17, 2023) – Aston Carter, a leading workforce solutions agency with a focus on financial and professional staffing services, announced today that its Head of Global
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I), Donnell Campbell, has been named an honoree on Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) 2023 DE&I Influencers List. The DE&I Influencers list recognizes professionals who are leading the charge to create opportunities for the historically excluded communities in the workforce solutions ecosystem.
Donnell has been working to advance DE&I in the workplace for more than 12 years and has served on Aston Carter’s Diversity Council for more than a decade. Donnell was promoted to head of Global DE&I in 2020. Partnering closely with executive leadership and internal employee resource groups, he forms strategic alliances with diverse professional associations to further advance Aston Carter's DE&I strategy.
“With Donnell leading our DE&I efforts, we’ve turned our value of inclusion from a proclamation into action. His passion and experience for building an organization where everyone is accepted, heard and celebrated is truly valued internally at Aston Carter, but also externally with this recognition,” said Aston Carter President, Stuart Ferguson. “We are proud of and grateful for Donnell’s accomplishments and thrilled to see him be recognized by SIA.”
Under Donnell’s guidance, Aston Carter has established strategic key partnerships with organizations such as the National Diversity Council, National Minority Development Council, Gary Sinise Foundation, Getting Hired and DOD SkillBridge. These strategic partnerships are critical to Aston Carter’s DE&I strategy and goal to help organizations across the globe become more diverse, equitable and inclusive.
Other key initiatives include hosting internal events to encourage employees to engage in meaningful conversations centered on DE&I and participate in events to foster a strong sense of community. Aston Carter employees understand the importance of showing up for their communities, so they prioritize participating in various events, parades and conferences that align with their values. Through volunteer efforts with organizations like the National Federation for Just Communities, Gary Sinise Foundation and Connective, Inc., they strive to build a stronger community and increase awareness for causes and organizations that support underrepresented communities and foster change.
