Brian Blake

Vice-President/Global Head of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, IGT
United States

Following a successful tenure leading Diversity and Inclusion for the National Hockey League (NHL), Brian Blake joined IGT in the spring of 2023 to run the company’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), dedicated to ensuring all IGT employees enjoy a diverse, equitable and inclusive working environment.

In his three and a half years at the NHL, Brian launched the organization’s first immersive-inclusion learning experience, which was delivered to all full-time employees including the league’s commissioner and senior executive team. He led and facilitated the NHL’s internal inclusion steering committee, multiple enterprise-wide town halls on topics such as inclusion and social justice, and the creation of the organization’s first Diversity and Inclusion Groups.

Prior to the NHL, Brian was instrumental in reenergizing DEI and learning-and-organizational development solutions at U.S.-based media company Turner (now Warner Bros Discovery). He also served as a senior career management consultant and organizational development consultant for organizations including JPMorgan Chase and Citizens Financial Group. Brian holds a bachelor’s degree in arts, political science and philosophy from New York University, and a Juris Doctor from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, in New York.
