For nearly a decade now, Kellye Whitney has channeled her avid enthusiasm to be a driving force in the conversation surrounding diversity in the workplace for both the Human Capital Media brands and the industry as a whole.
In her role as the Associate Editorial Director at Human Capital Media, she drives digital and print content strategy for Chief Learning Officer and CLOmedia.com as well as contributing to the success of Workforce and Talent Management magazines.
Whitney is a respected and authoritative expert on diversity and inclusion issues. She covers topics ranging from discrimination to empowerment in the workplace. There is no shying away, no topic that is untouchable in Whitney’s arsenal.
There are times when she is the provocateur, uncovering the seedy underbelly of workplace bias; other times, she finds that golden nugget, writing about the unsung hero who toils in obscurity while doing great things for a workplace’s diversity and inclusion initiatives. And there are the times when Whitney finds the humor and irony that inevitably exists within the workplace.
Whitney is an award-winning editor. For her most recent accolade, LinkedIn named her one of the Top 10 Media Voices of 2015. She also has attracted thousands of followers through her constant use of social media, consistently tweeting on a variety of diversity and inclusion topics. She also drives the conversation forward through her diversity-themed blog, A Life Not Grey.
