We are thrilled and honored to announce that Staffing Industry Analysts has selected Robin Mee, founder and president of Mee Derby, for their Global Power 100 List – Women In Staffing.
SIA began publishing the Staffing 100 List in 2011, and chose this year to pioneer a new list to recognize the staffing industry’s women leaders:
Anecdotal evidence indicates that women dominate the staffing industry, working in branch offices. But a very small number make it to boardrooms. On average, women comprise only 6% of board seats at the 27 public staffing firms in the US, for example.
The statistics tell their own story. We want to change the narrative to honor those women who are affecting staffing firms and by extension, the world of work. Our original goal was to have a Global Power 50, but the response to our call for nominations was overwhelming to say the least. So we have the Global Power 100 — Women in Staffing.
Among the 100, we have the policymakers, businesspersons, technologists, crusaders, leaders, etc., all wearing hats of different shapes and sizes. But there’s one thing they have in common: A love for promoting and shaping talent.
Over the past 25 years, Robin Mee has led a team of executive recruiters to success as one of the nation’s few “recruitment-to-recruitment” firms, staffing the staffing industry. Robin serves on the Board of Directors of CASA (Capital Area Staffing Association) and leads councils, committees and taskforces at the American Staffing Association.
“Regardless of titles, these women are game changers, people who have taken their operations to a whole new level.” – Subadhra Sriram
Congratulations to the other winners. Thanks to those who nominated Robin and all who have contributed to her vision to strengthen the staffing industry!
