(Indianapolis, Indiana, September 13, 2023) Lead At Any Level LLC Founder/CEO Amy C. Waninger is thrilled to announce her organization’s partnership with TechPACT, a group of CIOs, leaders, and IT professionals with the expertise and experience to make a difference regarding equality of opportunity in the workplace. Waninger and her LAAL Associate Consultant Angel G. Henry will be responsible for creating learning content for TechPACT.

They will be utilizing the foundation Waninger has established with her array of knowledge and experience as espoused in her books, which include Network Beyond Bias: Making Diversity a Competitive Advantage for Your Career, which assesses and improves the breadth and depth of one’s professional network, and Network Like a CHAMP, a Networking Activity Journal which helps individuals record networking conversations as they happen. Easy symbols help track and complete action items; you can add your own. The bottom of each page features two tracking mechanisms. The first enables you to identify who’s who in your CHAMP Network. Then, it’s time to ask yourself, what perspectives does your network IGNORE? For more information about each and to order both, visit https://tinyurl.com/22ybuch3 and https://tinyurl.com/bddsct7k.

“Our partnership with Lead at Any Level will bring tremendous value to our members and mission by bringing our +1 philosophy to life. Change doesn’t happen because we want it to happen; it happens because we are deliberate and thoughtful in our choices and actions. We’re big fans of Amy’s, and the beauty in the CHAMP (acronym Customer-Hired-Associate-Mentor-Protégé) framework is its simplicity. It is structured to ensure you constantly expand your boundaries and never fall into the status quo,” states Kimberly Saxton, CEO of TechPACT. “We are incredibly excited to work with her and Angel.”

Waninger adds, “While the labor demands of the tech industry may seem cyclical, the global worker shortage will continue to present challenges for tech companies. Organizations that recognize the need to attract—and, more importantly, retain—diverse talent will outcompete their rivals. TechPACT’s mission to reduce the digital divide and pursue representative diversity becomes imperative as the talent market shifts. Lead at Any Level is excited to provide tools and resources to expand opportunity and accelerate equity for tech workers.”

Henry, the author of Dents in the Ceiling and an Agile Mindset Expert, says, “Talent retention challenges are just that-challenges. Now is the time for innovation, creativity, and problem-solving, which is the essence of this industry. Leveraging an Agile Mindset to build inclusive practices is the model tech needs to employ to address talent retention. TechPACT is offering leaders the opportunity to shift into this new mindset and into new employee engagement models that will benefit everyone.”



TechPACT is a community of leaders who believe that for technology to reach its full potential, those who create it must represent the humanity it intends to serve. We envision a world where anyone passionate about technology can succeed through greater access to opportunity and an environment where diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) thrive.

TechPACT was founded by CIOs who recognize that change first starts with them and creates accountability through the community while achieving its mission through the collective efforts of our members. We identify ourselves as force multipliers and understand that each action we take creates an unstoppable network effect that will benefit millions across the globe; for more information, visit https://www.techpact.org/.
