Telesystem’s Mayka Rosales-Peterson
Rosales-Peterson will speak at Channel Partners Virtual this year alongside international speaker Risha Grant and founder of the Xposure Inclusion & Diversity Council, Kelli E. Ballou-McMillan. The session, entitled “Get Rid of the Unconscious BS,” diversity and inclusion thought leader Grant will share her perspectives as a woman of color and her prescriptions as a diversity expert. She’ll share truths about unconscious bias, micro-aggressions and other actions that perpetuate discrimination and inequality. The panel will offer some practical advice for finding respect, understanding and inclusion.
We at Channel Partners and Channel Futures are strong supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement, and we recently came out with a statement outlining that support. We know it takes much more than words to express not only our dedication to equality, but also to inclusion and diversity in the technology industry and the channel as a whole.
It is more important than ever to amplify diverse sets of voices, so in this installment of “It’s 501 Somewhere,” we sat down with Mayka to have a candid and honest conversation surrounding diversity and inclusion in the channel.
