Peter Gray, Founder & CEO, Peter Gray Executive Search
Executive recruiter Peter Gray has always struggled with a conundrum:
Why is there so much talk about these urgent issues, yet so little actual progress diversifying hiring outcomes?
After years at recruiting firms, Peter launched his own firm with a mission to recruit social impact leaders and fight bias in hiring. Hiring is rife with bias. And it’s not just the big bad isms and phobias. There are dimensions of bias unique to hiring that go unseen and unnamed. In this event, Peter names these dimensions of bias in hiring, and discusses what we can do to counter them and get more diverse hiring outcomes.
Peter Gray is a recovering Wall Street recruiter who now recruits social impact leaders and fights bias in hiring. As founder and CEO of Peter Gray Executive Search, based in Madison, Wisconsin, he guides nonprofit organizations and social impact employers through strategic hiring. His placement experience includes 25 CEO leadership successions, including four at affordable housing organizations. Peter also trains employers on diversifying hiring outcomes, and coaches individuals on overcoming bias in job search and career advancement.
