We’re a Corporate Plus Member

It is with great pleasure, honor, and excitement that we announce to you that Astyra Corporation is officially designated as CORPORATE PLUS!

We are one of only seven staffing businesses in America with this designation. The honor recognizes NMSDC-certified minority businesses that outperform expectations by fulfilling national contracts of Fortune 500 and other large companies. With this title, Astyra’s profile is elevated to the prominence of a company with the capabilities to deliver on large, complex projects across a nationwide footprint.

We can hardly contain our enthusiasm as we look to our future growth under the Corporate Plus program!

Black Entrepreneurs Hall of Fame

The Black Entrepreneurs Hall of Fame (BEHOF) will hold its inaugural induction ceremony in May. The event will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of the Tulsa riots. The induction class will include entrepreneurial giants such as Cathy Hughes of Radio One and the late Reginald Lewis of Beatrice Foods. Astyra’s own Ken Ampy serves on the Board of the Hall of Fame.
 
Leading up to the celebration, the BEHOF in conjunction with the Black Excellence Alliance, has been holding monthly seminars entitled “Black Wall Street: The Past, Present and Future of Black Excellence”, featuring some of today’s leading black entrepreneurs. For the March seminar, Ken was able to secure Warren Thompson as the keynote speaker. Mr. Thompson is the CEO of Thompson Hospitality, one of the largest Retail Food and Facilities Management companies in the country.

Leadership Lab

The 13th RVA Leadership Lab class chats virtually via Zoom.
Our Director of Recruiting, Carmen, is beginning a new adventure by participating in the RVA Leadership Lab’s 13th Class!
 
Leadership Lab is designed to create individual development and relationship-building opportunities for emerging leaders who are interested in increasing their capacity to influence and lead within their organization. 
 
Carmen believes that “participating in Leadership Lab will give me the tools to not only understand WHO I AM as a leader; but, how I can be most effective in leading others. So far, I have learned that we live and work by our core values and I am most excited about how this program will transform me.”
