 Ted Childs Biography

When Ted Childs started at IBM over 39 years ago, equal opportunity was considered a core principle of the company’s values with a strong history of focus on gender, race, and disability. Through the leadership of Childs, IBM broadened the definition of diversity to include sensitivity to cultures, sexual orientation, and age. As a leading corporate diversity expert, Childs understands the importance of embracing diversity and the advantage it provides in the war for talent and an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

His success with IBM has been attributed to looking beyond the internal factors of the organization to the diverse external entities that affect a company’s success such as customers, advertisers, suppliers, the applicant pool, and community at large. Childs believes that in order for an organization to achieve its highest potential, it must pay close attention to changing global demographics and emerging issues, and embrace them as opportunities for growth.

Captivating and eloquent, he challenges organizations to become fully vested in diversity and take ownership of it. With almost 40 years of success in corporate America, Childs gets straight to the bottom line and proves that a healthy diversity policy is essential to achieving the ultimate competitive advantage.

Most importantly, Childs explains, this dialogue is about leadership: Can we create workplaces where our best and brightest people, our core business assets, can give their best each day, at the highest levels of productivity, morale, and retention? Explaining that it is necessary to not only compete in business but to win, Childs encourages corporations to ask themselves what is possible and seek game-changing solutions. The old ways of conducting business are not enough: the time for change is now.
