Hanover, Md.

The list recognizes 50 professionals who are leading the charge to create opportunities for historically excluded communities in the workforce solutions ecosystem.
“DJ’s passion and lifelong commitment to outreach and advocating for underrepresented communities has helped shape fresh dialogue, leading to real change for both internal employees and the many contractors that go to work for Aerotek every year,” says Tom Kelly, Aerotek President. “We are fortunate to have DJ as a leader within our organization and are proud that he is being recognized by SIA.”
Within the last year, DJ has worked closely with leaders in launching four internal Employee Resource Groups at Aerotek, including P.R.I.D.E., Women at Aerotek, Black Indigenous People of Color, and Veterans & First Responders.

Over the past 27 years, he has played a critical role in recruiting and developing a diverse workforce within Aerotek and the clients served through his previous roles in recruiting, sales and training. In his current role, DJ ensures Aerotek is spreading equitable opportunities across all employees, measuring the systems, structures and processes to ensure a clear pathway for equity.
