IT and Business Insights for SMB Solution Providers

ChannelPro Announces Its First-Ever Single-Topic Edition: Stronger Together

The October issue of ChannelPro magazine will be devoted to one critical topic: bringing greater diversity, equity, and inclusion to IT, guided by 11 guest editors from the channel who bring an array of perspectives to the table. By Michael Siggins and Rich Freeman

Here are two irrefutable facts about IT: It has changed literally billions of lives for the better, and the people responsible for those changes are less diverse than the people they’ve benefited.

Like many of you, we at ChannelPro passionately believe that a tech industry more closely aligned with our planet’s wonderful mix of gender, race, ethnicity, age, religion, and more will be a stronger, better industry, and that greater diversity will help the MSPs, VARs, and solution providers who read our publication achieve even more success. The question is how to realize that ideal.

It’s both a big and important challenge, so for the first time in our 13-year history, we’re dedicating an entire issue to one critical topic, which we’ve organized around the theme “Stronger Together.” And how better to tackle a topic so vital to the IT community than with the help of our own community of readers, colleagues, and friends? To ensure we brought a rich array of perspectives to this subject, ChannelPro turned for vision and direction to the 11 guest editors listed below.

We’re honored to know all of them, and thank them for the time, insights—and in many cases writing—they’ve contributed during these unsettled times. Our hope is that the wisdom they shared with us, which is reflected on every page that follows, and the roadmap we’ve laid out with their assistance for bringing diversitym equity, and inclusion to your business will help you, and ultimately all of us, achieve a much-desired goal.
