Technology Leader Fahim Siddiqui Honored by Two Community Organizations
Fahim Siddiqui, The Home Depot’s senior vice president of information technology, has been named on the Islamic Speaker Bureau’s “100 Influential Georgia Muslims” list. This recognition is part of a recent Georgia State Senate Resolution honoring leaders who demonstrate transformational vision and the ability to break down barriers, spark innovation and attain success for their organizations and communities. Recognized leaders also demonstrate positive characteristics and inspire goodwill across the business, nonprofit and government landscapes.
“I’m honored and humbled to be associated with these outstanding organizations that are doing so much to give back,” says Fahim. “It is with great pride that I represent our culture and values, especially Respect for all People, on a local, national and global scale given the impactful reach of the Carter Center and Islamic Speakers Bureau. One of the many benefits of giving back is the opportunity to expand one’s perspective and gain appreciation for other cultures.”
Additionally, Fahim was also recently named to the Board of Councilors of The Carter Center, which was founded by former President Jimmy Carter with the mission of “Waging Peace, Fighting Disease and Building Hope” around the world. In this role, Fahim will become a member of a leadership advisory group that serves to advance understanding of and support for The Carter Center and its activities among private-sector opinion leaders.
Fahim has served as a member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors since 2019. He is also an active member of their Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Taskforce. For his contributions to DE&I, the National Diversity Council recognized Fahim with their Technology Leadership Award in 2020.
Fahim joined The Home Depot in 2018 and has been instrumental in enhancing how technology enables more seamless experiences for customers and associates.
