Lamont Hatcher Recognized by Channel Futures DE&I List for Promoting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Technology Channels

Launched in 2021, the Channel Futures DE&I 101 recognizes individuals from diverse and multicultural backgrounds who are driving diversity, equity, and inclusion in the information and communications technology channel through their words, actions, and leadership.

While organizations in the channel are often acknowledged for DE&I programs they’ve launched, it’s the people at the grassroots level who get things started and keep the momentum going. The DE&I 101 turns a spotlight on those people. People who are impacting the industry. The Channel Futures DE&I 101 is a list, not a ranking. Individuals can self-nominate or be nominated by others. All submitted names were carefully reviewed by a panel of Channel Futures team members.

This year’s 101 honorees come from throughout the information and communication technology channel. Representing multicultural backgrounds, they all work to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the channel.
