In honor of Black History Month, the Colorado Chamber is recognizing Black business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, and job creators who have grown their businesses from the ground up and are core to our local Colorado communities.
Today’s feature is Michelle Campbell, Founder and CEO of Diverse Talent
In 1990, Michelle Campbell leveraged her engineering degree and became the founder of MD Campbell & Associates, LLC., an engineering firm with a focus of engineering systems and operations. In addition, was instrumental in recruiting diverse candidates for available engineering positions. As a woman of color in the engineering space, the call to assist clients with their technical and human resource staffing issues was a unique yet necessary business aspect. Her commitment to support clients to recruit diverse candidates for engineering positions was a critical decision during that time.
Michelle later founded Diverse Talent, an executive search and placement firm that prides itself on dispelling the myth that a pipeline issue exists. Diverse Talent is intentional in their efforts to assist organizations with their diversity initiatives and goals through their recruiting efforts.
To assist organizations with their diversity and equity training efforts, Michelle brought REACH (Respecting Ethnic and Cultural Heritage) a non-profit since 1976 committed to education/training around equity standards to Colorado. Colorado REACH partners with Diverse Talent to ensure diversity initiatives and training goals are achieved.
Michelle earned her engineering degree from Kansas State University, where she was awarded numerous academic honors. Additionally, she has a master’s degree in counseling, where she vowed to utilize her academic success to provide a platform for others to excel. Michelle is committed to continuing her life passion of community engagement, leadership and providing access and opportunities to all.
Colorado REACH is holding a Pillsbury House Theatre Live event on June 3rd, 2022. Find out more information here.
