Circa is pleased to announce Cari Dominguez, former Chair of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, has joined its Board of Directors effective Aug. 9, 2021. She is nationally recognized for her expertise in public policymaking, workforce issues and corporate governance.
Dominguez formerly served at the U.S. Department of Labor in roles as Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employment Standards and Labor Management, and Director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. In the latter capacity, she created, launched, and led the Labor Department’s Glass Ceiling Initiative, designed to remove from the workplace invisible barriers affecting the advancement of women and underrepresented groups.
“We’re honored to have Cari join Circa’s board,” Patrick Sheahan, Circa CEO said. “Her accomplishments representing women and underrepresented groups are unparalleled and uniquely align with Circa’s mission to help businesses transform workplaces through diversity.”
Her current roles include serving as lead director on the board of Triple-S Management Corp., the exclusive BlueCross BlueShield managed healthcare company in Puerto Rico. She is also a trustee of the Calvert Funds, a recently retired board member of ManpowerGroup, a global workforce solutions company, and principal of Dominguez & Associates, a management consulting firm providing services in human capital management and governance.
“Cari’s vast knowledge of workforce diversity is imperative in helping Circa continue to grow, shape its vision and become the leading provider of diversity recruiting and compliance management software in the U.S.,” Sheahan said. “We look forward to her input and leaning on her vast knowledge of diversity and workforce development.”
“I’m delighted to be joining Circa’s board,” Dominguez said. “Their market leadership and innovative ways enable companies to use technology to drive diversity, do good, and affect bottom line results. I’m so looking forward to learning more about the business and providing input that will advance their mission.”
Research supports companies moving from diversity as a program to diversity as a business strategy. According to McKinsey’s economic state of Black America report, $2B in potential revenue exists if financial inclusion efforts broaden services for black Americans and $12TN in additional GDP if gender gap is narrowed by 2025.
Circa was formed when LocalJobNetwork was rebranded in July 2020 and since then has acquired America’s Job Exchange and DiversityJobs. The company provides SaaS-based OFCCP compliance management and recruiting technology solutions to deliver qualified candidates on a level, equitable playing field that meet organizations’ needs to build high-performing, diverse teams. Diversity and inclusion are not only proven to drive innovation and employee satisfaction but also increase revenue for employers.
