IBM Diversity Executive To Speak At The University Of Virginia

November 7, 2002-- "No matter who you are, you're going to have to work with people who are different from you. … and manage people who are different from you," said J. T. “Ted” Childs, an IBM executive.

Childs, a former advisor to the White House Working Group on Child Care, will speak at the University of Virginia Rotunda, Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 8 p.m.

Known as one of the most effective diversity executives in the country, Childs’ talk is part of the Exploration in Black Leadership series and is cosponsored by the Institute of Public history and the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration.

Childs joined IBM in 1967, and is the corporation's vice president of Global Workforce Diversity. Childs has served as an advisor for various state and federal initiatives to address childcare issues working parents face.

In 1997, he was named by “Working Mother” magazine as one of 25 "Men Friends Of The Family" who have made it easier for working parents to raise and nurture children. In 1998, the National Association of Childcare Resource and Referral Agencies presented Childs with its Lifetime Achievement Award.

Childs, a graduate of West Virginia State College, was executive assistant to Benjamin L. Hooks, a former executive director of the NAACP. The discussion is free and open to the public.
