I am the CEO and Founder of Ginny Clarke, LLC, my own talent management and leadership consulting business. I also do keynote speaking, podcasting and am the author of Career Mapping: Charting Your Course in the New World of Work. My podcast, Fifth Dimensional Leadership is for leaders, thinkers and future-makers dedicated to creating the conscious workplace of tomorrow.
Most recently I was Director, Executive Recruiting at Google from August 2016 until November 2020 where, including leading a team of executive recruiters, I built both the Leadership Diversity and Internal Mobility programs. Before Google, I was a Partner at Spencer Stuart, the global executive search firm for 12 years. I co-founded and led the firm’s Global Diversity Practice. Before getting into the talent/leadership space, I worked in financial services with Chase, JLL and Prudential.
I’m a native Californian, just moved back to Chicago after my time with Google, and am committed to expanding consciousness in leadership to redefine the “Future of Work” in terms that work for all, not just some. I am a single mother of an adult son, Julian, who works in the entertainment industry.
I love talking about leadership, hiring, careers, motherhood, racial equity, spirituality and consciousness - not to mention fashion, cooking and decorating!
