PRO Unlimited’s New UNITES Diversity Council to Lead Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Transformation in the Contingent Workforce Industry

Diverse suppliers, nonprofits and diversity experts form council to elevate the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the workplace.

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PRO Unlimited, the modern workforce management solutions provider, announced a new initiative of its comprehensive Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) solution, PRO Unites. PRO’s new UNITES Diversity Council connects leading organizations, including diverse suppliers, nonprofits and diversity all-stars, to drive DEI in the contingent workforce industry.

With the UNITES Diversity Council, PRO builds on its purely vendor-neutral platform, its membership with Stanford’s VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab, and its proven partnerships with suppliers to cultivate mutually beneficial relationships that impact and elevate DEI. The UNITES Diversity Council members have demonstrated their commitment to making a difference for clients and individuals in the contingent workforce ecosystem. These change agents include:

  • Diverse Suppliers: Organizations within PRO’s client portfolio with demonstrated excellence and commitment to DEI.
  • Nonprofits: Nonprofit networks focused on developing and deploying diverse workers.
  • Diversity All-Stars: Non-diverse suppliers that have demonstrated a commitment to progressing diversity and inclusion at PRO’s clients.

“In order to take significant action and reach our shared DEI goals, we need to partner with other organizations to collectively remove barriers to diversity, and support a culture of inclusion,” said Kevin Akeroyd, CEO at PRO Unlimited. “Our UNITES Diversity Council brings together different, but like-minded, leaders to collaborate on this critical business imperative.”

As a part of the UNITES Diversity Council, these change leaders will help shape the future of DEI in the contingent workforce industry. PRO’s goal is to enable and support these innovators to further expand their reach and impact. Collectively, this council will pool their expertise on exciting projects such as diversity research, white papers, round tables and industry forums. This combined knowledge will help guide the industry forward.
