DeLibra Wesley Is the 2023 ASA Volunteer of the Year

ASA has named DeLibra Wesley, president and chief executive officer of Dallas-based National Recruiting Consultants, the 2023 Volunteer of the Year. The Volunteer of the Year award is selected through nominations from volunteer peers from across the country.

“DeLibra Wesley exemplifies the best of the staffing industry,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and CEO. “DeLibra’s enthusiasm and passion for volunteering lifts up everyone around her. We thank her for all of her contributions to ASA and the staffing industry.”

As the leader of a woman- and minority-owned business, Wesley is a leading advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. In addition to serving on the ASA board of directors, she also serves as vice chairman of the inclusion, diversity, and equity advocacy (IDEA) group council and is a member of the ASA women in leadership interest group council, as well as the ASA Texas Network council. In addition, Wesley has completed two cycles as a mentor in the ASA Mentor Match program and has participated as a facilitator and panelist at ASA events. She is a sought-out diversity, equity, and inclusion subject matter expert.

Wesley will be honored during a ceremony at Staffing World, Oct. 25–27 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
