Impellam leadership named in SIA DE&I Influencers list 2024

We are delighted to announce that two of our team at Impellam Group have been named on the 2024 SIA Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Influencers list for the US and Canada: Ann Bookout, SVP, ED&I and Change Effectiveness and Geogina Gold, North America Programme Director at Guidant Global. 

Georgina Gold 

In addition to her day job, Georgina looks after the in-house mentorship program at Impellam, pairing mentors with mentees to develop and retain top talent at Impellam in the US.  

Georgina is the North American leader of IMWomxn, the group which celebrates anyone who identifies as female, provides a safe space for members to discuss these issues and share their experiences. For her the benefits of confronting uncomfortable topics far outweigh the initial discomfort. “Don’t be afraid to … have the big talk,” she urges. “You'll get deeper relationships and better connections from doing so.” 

Ann Bookout 

Ann counts the successful planning and execution of our Diverse Supplier Summit among her recent DE&I achievements. The event brought a wide range of diverse customers, suppliers and community partners together. It also featured a keynote speaker from a local historically Black college who talked about the talent landscape and the importance of building a pipeline of diverse talent. “The event really focused on bringing diverse suppliers into the conversation but also [on] the diversity of talent communities,” Bookout says. “It led to really great cross-collaboration with our customers.”
