DENVER, CO (September 28, 2023) – Pax8, the leading cloud commerce marketplace, today announced that Lyndsey Hoffman, Vice President of Social Impact, has been named to the third annual Channel Futures DE&I (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) 101 list. The list recognizes individuals from a wide spectrum of multicultural backgrounds who are driving DE&I in the communications and technology channel through their words, actions, and leadership. Hoffman’s recognition stems from her exceptional leadership and commitment to fostering a culture of collaboration, respect, and trust as she works to amplify the voices of underrepresented individuals and promote equality and justice in the workplace and beyond.
“We are immensely proud of Lyndsey’s well-deserved recognition on the Channel Futures DE&I 101 list as her accomplishments over the last 12 months have been truly remarkable,” said Lori Frasier, Chief People Officer, Americas at Pax8. “Her tireless commitment to driving social impact and fostering a culture of inclusivity is not only an inspiration to all of us at Pax8 but also a driving force for positive change in the channel with our partners, vendors, and communities.”
Since becoming Vice President of Social Impact in 2022, Hoffman and her team have been instrumental in advancing Pax8’s efforts to promote inclusivity and social change. This includes launching six Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to support employees with shared interests or backgrounds, advocating for equality and justice in company policies, and mentoring leaders on inclusive leadership. Furthermore, Hoffman is preparing to establish the company’s inaugural Global DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging) Council in 2024, aimed at fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace culture. Lastly, she has played a vital role in driving Pax8’s corporate social responsibility initiatives by collaborating with over 300 non-profit organizations worldwide.
The Channel Futures DE&I 101 list was created to spotlight the efforts of dedicated and determined individuals working to eliminate discrimination in the industry. Many of these individuals work behind the scenes and too often their efforts go unacknowledged. This list raises the visibility of individuals who are truly at the center of change in the industry.
“DE&I work requires levels of dedication and determination that many people do not possess,” said Kelly Danziger, General Manager of 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.”
“DE&I is alive and well in the channel,” said Robert DeMarzo, Vice President of Content at Informa Tech Channels. “This year we received more nominations than ever before and learned of some remarkable achievements that should be celebrated.”
