SPX Flow Inc has hired its first chief diversity officer to help build on the company’s culture of belonging.
In this new role, Dori Armstead will advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as spearhead community relations.
Before joining SPX Flow, Armstead served as vice president of human resources at Wingate University where she integrated elements of diversity, equity and inclusion in the human capital life cycle. Prior to Wingate, Armstead helped lead diversity and inclusion programs at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Comcast Spotlight, Meridian IQ, Eli Lilly Corp and Progress Energy.
“We’re proud of the progress we have made in our culture of belonging, and we’re excited to see our inclusive culture grow even stronger with Dori’s leadership,” said Peter Ryan, SPX Flow’s chief people officer and general counsel. “Equally as important is the role SPX Flow plays in our communities, and Dori will be instrumental in finding the best strategies for us to contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion where we live and work.”
“At this moment in history, there is nothing more important for companies than finding ways to make a difference, both internally and externally,” said Armstead. “I’m impressed by the intentional work SPX Flow has been doing around diversity, equity and inclusion, and I’m excited about our plans to have even greater impact.”
