ATLANTA – April 21, 2021 – Randstad North America today announced that Audra Jenkins, the organization's Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, was recognized as one of the National Diversity Council's (NDC) Top 100 Diversity Officers. The organization honors officers who exhibit exemplary leadership skills in diversity and inclusion, advance new and deepen existing initiatives, and lead organizational change.
