ClearEdge Marketing CEO Leslie Vickrey makes SIA’s 2021 Top 50 DEI Influencers List

ClearEdge Founder and CEO, Leslie Vickrey, was recognized as one of Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2021 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Influencers. This list includes 50 remarkable professionals across the United States and Canada who have been making progress to move the #diversity mission forward and create much needed change. 


Leslie believes that DE&I is necessary for any business to thrive: “One has to be intentional with inclusion and equality and make it a part of their DNA. It’s all about looking back to look ahead…providing equal opportunities [to people] is how it should be.”


There are many examples of Leslie’s DE&I work, as she has been actively involved with multiple organizations, events and community programs for over 10 years. Leslie and two of her best friends co-founded ARA in 2013, a group dedicated to attracting, retaining and advancing women in tech. This organization now spans across the country and has 6,000 members. 


Along with ARA, Leslie is passionate about mentoring high school students, funding programs such as the Young Women’s Leadership Society, and serving on the Board of Advisors for Chicago Innovation. Her speaking engagements allow her to connect her network and give a platform to those who would benefit.


Her biggest platform, TheEdge Podcast, enables Leslie to host brilliant women leaders from all sectors of the talent and tech industry. These are just a few of the many examples of how she “walks the talk” each and every day. 


The entire team at ClearEdge Marketing is proud to see Leslie’s name on this list and believes in working for a company that prioritizes DE&I. Check out the full list of influencers and keep up with Leslie and ClearEdge Marketing on LinkedIn.
