Craig Robinson is EVP and Chief Diversity Officer for NBCUniversal. He reports to NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell.
Robinson is responsible for defining and building an equitable and inclusive culture across the NBCUniversal portfolio and collaborates with the businesses to foster an inclusive work environment. Additionally, alongside Comcast Chairman and CEO Brian Roberts, Robinson is leading Comcast’s $100 million commitment to fight injustice and inequality, and to accelerate company efforts in all areas of diversity, equity and inclusion.
Raised in the Echo Park district of Los Angeles, Robinson’s interest in public service was sparked at an early age by his parents. His Chinese-American mother retired after a long career in public service, much of it in support of low-income families through the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Robinson’s father was one of the first Black consultants for the Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC), where he investigated allegations of racial, gender and age discrimination in housing and employment. Race, equality and civil rights were frequent topics at the Robinson dinner table and those discussions continue to inform and drive his commitment to diversity and inclusion today.
