MARLBORO, N.J. — September 28, 2023 — IT By Design, a master managed services provider (MSP), announced today that President Kam Kaila was selected to the Channel Futures DE&I 101 list. The list recognizes individuals from a wide spectrum of multicultural backgrounds who are driving diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the technology channel through their words, actions, and leadership.
“DE&I initiatives have always been at the core of my work,” Kaila said. “My commitment to fostering an inclusive environment where underrepresented voices are heard and empowered is unwavering, and I remain dedicated to promoting diversity across the technology industry.”
Kaila actively promotes diversity, equity and inclusion by offering formal training and executive support, both within the IT By Design organization and outside of it at industry events. Alongside her team, Kaila regularly advocates for DE&I, emphasizing its proven benefits for executive leadership teams and business bottom lines. As a woman in a male-dominated channel, she is committed to supporting other women as an advocate and ally.
“This honor is well-deserved, considering Kam’s dedication and hard work not only within IT By Design but in the local technology community,” said Sunny Kaila, CEO and founder of IT By Design. “Her commitment to these principles goes beyond mere words; she embodies them through her actions.”
Nominations for the DE&I 101 list were solicited on the Channel Futures website and through social media. Between April 12 and July 14, individuals could nominate themselves or others for the list. Applications were open to managers, leaders and individual contributors. All submissions were reviewed by members of the Channel Futures editorial team with input from advisory board members.
“DE&I work requires levels of dedication and determination that many people do not possess,” said Kelly Danziger, general manager, Informa Tech Channels. “But as anyone on this list can tell you, the work is as rewarding as it is hard. We are pleased to be able to recognize these individuals and, hopefully, amplify their efforts.”
