TEMPE, Ariz., February 1, 2022 – Two executives at Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ:NSIT), an industry-recognized solutions integrator helping clients accelerate their digital journey, were honored last week by Women in Cloud as WICxAllies Award winners for their work to build inclusive processes for empowerment, sponsorship and advocacy of women in tech.
Insight CFO Glynis Bryan earned the Advocate Award for authoring and sponsoring Insight supplier diversity initiatives and providing executive sponsorship of Insight’s newly launched Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Group Mentoring program. The Advocate Award honors champions who make their organizational and supplier ecosystems more diverse and inclusive.
John Dathan, Insight Canada senior vice president and general manager, earned the Overall Allies Award, presented for clearly demonstrating his work to advocate, empower and sponsor women in tech.
“People are at the heart of everything we do, starting with creating opportunities for everyone to meaningfully contribute to solving our clients’ greatest transformation challenges. Besides their business acumen, Glynis and John selflessly put our teammates, clients and partners in the best positions to succeed by encouraging an open, collaborative and equal workplace,” said Insight President and CEO Joyce Mullen.
As a staunch advocate of growing diversity and inclusion, Dathan believes in turning words into actions. He sponsored the launch of Insight’s first teammate resource group, Women With Insight, in 2018. In 2021, he sponsored Insight’s first Allies in Action cohort, uniting 20 men in executive positions (director and above) for extensive training on proactively supporting and promoting women’s careers.
Dathan regularly hosts forums at Insight to drive candid conversations about how to strengthen organizational diversity and teamwork, including a roundtable in November with David G. Smith and W. Brad Johnson, authors of “Good Guys: How Men Can be Allies to Women in the Workplace.”
Bryan led the launch of the Insight Supplier Diversity Program Office, expanding opportunities for diverse and minority-owned hardware, software and cloud service providers to gain access to Insight’s global client network. In 2021, Insight invested nearly $550 million in 2,700 diverse-owned businesses, including more than $60 million for 218 women-owned businesses.
Bryan also is known within Insight as a selfless mentor of female executives. Her support of D&I Group Mentoring saw 209 mentees in the program’s first year gain exposure to new career paths by working with mentors with diverse personal and professional backgrounds than their own. Bryan also serves as board chair of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley, the third largest club in the Boys & Girls Club of America network and Arizona’s largest youth organization.
The WICxAllies Award winners were announced during the virtual #WICxAnnualSummit 2022, a forum this week for industry thought leaders to build their “collective influence” on gender equity. Insight serves as a key partner of Women in Cloud, supporting the #WICxFortune100 Initiative creating greater access for women in technology.
Friday at the summit, Insight CEO Mullen and Brenda Hudson, Insight senior vice president of commercial sales, sales enablement, learning and development, will respectively speak on adaptive leadership and building meaningful connections. Amy Protexter, Insight senior vice president of marketing, earlier this week was named to the Women in Cloud board of directors.
