Deonte is both a member of the Black Networking Alliance ERG and a co-lead for the Client Solutions Group Diversity Action Council. For the past seven years, he has helped to recruit collegiate engineers at the National Society of Black Engineers conference, and has been a continual internal advocate for increasing the number of minority intern and full-time hires. Deonte also recently led a company-wide initiative involving executives hosting listening sessions with diverse team members to gain a deeper understanding of their experiences within the corporate culture. His team used the Design Thinking framework to turn observations and insights into specific ideas and actions that have begun to be implemented across Dell Technologies. He also influenced others to become allies and advocates for underrepresented groups by encouraging over one thousand people to take a pledge to educate themselves, listen to the perspectives of others, and take a stand against injustices.
