TSNN will be honoring Ray Rhodes, Global Director Inclusion, Diversity for RX Global, as the 2021 TSNN DEI Leadership Award honoree.
After several years of intensive engagement with Inclusion and Diversity programs, including launching and leading RXUS Pride, the first Employee Resource Group (ERG) to be introduced at RX, Rhodes was appointed the Global Director of Inclusion and Diversity for the business in April 2021.
Rhodes has launched a number of important initiatives across RX, including forming the RX Global Inclusion Council, an I&D advisory board comprised of RX colleagues from 19 countries, representing many cultures and diversity dimensions. He and his team deliver programs that promote unconscious bias awareness, team psychological safety, equality allyship and inclusive leadership.
“It’s a great honor to be awarded the inaugural TSNN DEI Leadership Award. I am so fortunate to work in an industry that I love, and for an organization that shares my passion for making a positive impact on society, our colleagues, and our customers through our unique contributions as a business,” Rhodes said.
He added, “ This award is recognition that we have started on the journey, a journey that a community of over 140 RX’ers worldwide have volunteered to be a part of, so that together we will drive our culture of inclusion and belonging, internally and externally I want to thank our CEO, Hugh Jones, and the entire RX Executive Leadership Team for their unwavering support and sponsorship – genuinely showing that you have to lead from the front in order to make a difference I can’t wait to come back and share our progress in the coming months.”
