David Kenny

David is both Nielsen’s CEO and Chief Diversity Officer. He has implemented numerous accountability measures, including tying executive incentives to D&I contributions, implementing executive leader representation for every ERG, setting the expectation that all people managers must be active in the ERG program, updating the company annual performance to include personal contributions to D&I, and implementing an inclusion index for the ongoing employee engagement survey. David filed an Amicus brief with the Supreme Court supporting the exclusion of a citizenship question to the 2020 census which would have potentially discouraged minority participation, and brought together industry bodies to oppose the undercounting of diverse populations. As a result, the Supreme Court questioned the administration’s motives, and the citizenship question was removed. He has also supported preserving the DACA program and signing The Hispanic Promise.
