Data & Society is thrilled to announce today that Nicolas Correa has joined us as our new Director of HR & Equity.
Previously, he served as Head of People, Talent & Culture with GLAAD. Prior to that, Correa was Director of HR, Americas Region for Cambridge University Press. In addition to driving People & Talent initiatives across North America, Carrera has led teams and partnered with business leaders on a global scale including across Western European, Latin American, and Asian-Pacific regions. Certified by SHRM, Correa brings broad experience across multiple disciplines and industries to Data & Society.
The Director of HR & Equity role was created to lead our efforts to evolve our culture in support of staff wellbeing, and to center our work toward diversity, equity, and inclusion across the organization. Correa joins the institute’s senior team at a time of broad opportunity and reconfiguration. As Director of HR & Equity at Data & Society, he will drive performance and engagement across the organization with special projects, including the implementation of a remote and physical office strategy to promote collaboration in our newly-distributed team configuration.
“Nic brings a perfect mix of professional skills and deep, relevant experience to this role,” said Data & Society Executive Director Janet Haven. “And his track record of community-sensitive leadership reflects an ability to understand the DEI commitments within our organizational strategy, bolstering Data & Society’s ability to build mission-inspired, truly inclusive teams.”
Correa will work closely with Haven on key people, culture, and equity issues in the organization.
“I am thrilled to be joining Data & Society, where I will tackle the dual challenges of fostering an engaging remote-first culture while building equitable hiring and retention structures that are responsive to not just a critical historical moment, but also cognizant of long-standing societal needs for inclusion and justice,” said Correa.
Correa holds a BS from Post University. He is a native of Colombia and fluent in Spanish.
