From the church he grew up in to his family owned restaurant in which Civil Rights leaders gathered, Todd A. Gray’s roots are intricately tied to the city of Atlanta.
Unlike some minority experiences in other communities, he said he felt lucky to see successful people in Atlanta who looked like him: African-American mayors, lawyers, doctors and more. If they could reach for the sky, so could he.
When a major career opportunity knocked in 2013, Gray opened the door, departed his head supplier diversity position with a fortune 50 company in Rhode Island and found himself back in the hometown he loves. One of the largest health systems in the U.S., Atlanta-based Grady Health System recruited Gray to be its director of supplier diversity.
