Josh Graff

UK country manager and VP marketing solutions EMEA & LATAM, LinkedIn
In only three years, Graff has hit his self-imposed target of a 50/50 gender balance, with half of roles in LinkedIn’s marketing, sales, account management and operations functions now held by women. The lessons learned from this achievement are now being incorporated into a gender aware recruitment process across the whole UK business. Graff is also working on new LinkedIn tools that will help users to hire stronger and more diverse teams themselves. A founder of LGBT advocacy group Open for Business, he has also been featured on the FT’s Top 50 LGBT Leaders List.

She Says: "I have worked with Josh for nearly eight years and he has been a rock to me. He is a genuine, inspiring leader and a role model to us all – specifically in the areas of diversity, inclusion and belonging." Janice Chamberlin, director of talent solutions, LinkedIn
