President and Chief Technology Officer selected for dedication to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and community.
Brooklyn, NY – Recycle Track Systems (RTS) today announced that President and Chief Technology Officer, Allyn Shaw, will be honored by the Brooklyn Nets with the Jason Collins Award for Courage and Leadership at the team’s fourth-annual Pride Night at Barclays Center.
Jason Collins, the NBA’s first active openly gay player and former Brooklyn Net, will present the award on the court during Pride Night. The award honors LGBTQ individuals for their courage and leadership on issues of LGBTQ inclusion. Allyn was selected for his dedication to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and in the broader community.
“Jason Collins embodies the role model many of us needed while growing up as people of color, queer or both. I’m deeply honored to accept this award on behalf of all who advocate for those who are underrepresented in our communities,” said Allyn Shaw. “Courage is the raw fuel powering the engine of positive change and true belonging. Like Jason, we must find the strength to call out inequality where we see it and hold others accountable in order to protect everyone’s right to thrive.”
“The Brooklyn Nets are proud to present Allyn Shaw with the Jason Collins Award for Courage and Leadership,” said BSE Global’s Senior Vice President of Communications, Mandy Gutmann. “We look forward to hosting Pride Night each season to celebrate and support the diversity in Brooklyn, and honor advocates like Allyn who have had such a tremendous and positive impact on our community.”
Allyn joined RTS in 2019 to oversee the expansion of RTS’ cutting-edge technology platform and focus on enabling end-to-end technology and operations, including software, data management, mobility, and communication technologies to support scalability and innovation.
“Allyn is a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion who sets an example for all of us,” said RTS CEO Greg Lettieri. “He finds purpose in creating a sense of belonging that allows everyone to thrive and we’re incredibly lucky to have him on our team.”
Prior to RTS, Allyn was the Chief Operating Officer of Global Information Security for Bank of America where he was instrumental in the creation of Bank of America’s LGBT+ Executive Council and Steering Committee. He advocated for the expansion of Bank of America’s D&I Council to include LGBTQ issues and was a key player in the creation of the Global Technology & Operations LGBTQ Advisory Council.
Allyn currently serves on the board of directors at Out and Equal Workplace Advocates, and is the Out in Tech Corporate Executive Sponsor and Advisor, and Corporate Executive Sponsor for Lesbians Who Tech.
