Having joined Diageo in 2017, Perry’s department’s business has increased ethnic minority hiring from 32% in 2017 to 47% in 2018. He is actively involved in the North America African Heritage Employees at Diageo (AHEAD) business resource group, and helps drive efforts to accelerate their focus on diversity and inclusion. He recently served on a panel discussion as part of a new “Are you IN” series for employees, which took place during Black History Month and has resulted in an increased level of attention to diversity and inclusion awareness. Externally, Perry serves on the Board of Trustees for the Alabama Agriculture and Mechanical University, is a board member at Grambling State University School of Personal development, and participates in mentoring programmes for women and ethnic minority individuals. Additionally, this year Perry was named as one of Savoy magazine’s “Most Influential Blacks in Corporate America.”
