Joshua Graff

Josh took action and held all his managers accountable for ensuring that women were hired, promoted and developed into management.  He set an aspirational goal of 50/50 gender parity at every level of seniority within LinkedIn’s EMEA Marketing Solutions organisation, which was successfully hit this year through a variety of diversity and inclusion efforts. He did this through a programme involving sponsorship, mentoring, breaking bias training sessions, and insisting on diverse hiring slates & interview panels. He is also a sponsor for several future female leaders, and Executive Sponsor and host of a diversity evening at LinkedIn which brought together senior clients and D&I leaders with an appetite for driving change. Josh is a mentor to female leaders in the US, UK, and across EMEA & APAC. He frequently talks to the media about the importance of diversity in the workplace and the opportunities to drive more senior female leaders.
