John Herlihy

John is the Executive Sponsor of LinkedIn’s Embrace program, which aims to empower LinkedIn to fully welcome and represent all cultures, ethnicities and nationalities. A key element is to overcome unconscious bias and foster inclusion by embracing cultural, nationality and ethnic diversity at every level of the organization. This is approached by promoting professional development and growth of ethnic minorities collaboratively¬†across the EMEA and LATAM regions. This has led to the development of a retention program, regular networking roundtables with members and allies and close partnerships with external organizations to inspire the next generation of diverse tech talent, such as LinkedIn’s support of the Black Girls Teach Summit in London.
