Speaker Profile

Janis Middleton
Executive Vice President, Chief Inclusion Officer / Guided By Good

Janis Middleton has years of experience in content and media and has led various clients, such as The Home Depot, Buffalo Wild Wings, SunTrust (now Truist), and Hanes, to success. Her background has made her extremely knowledgeable in developing and implementing people-focused strategies, which ultimately led to her current role as EVP and chief inclusion officer at Guided by Good. She has always had a passion for building and cultivating environments that provide equal opportunities for all people to thrive. She understood marginalized audiences were consistently underrepresented with less access to tools for success. It was with this experience that she built the portfolio’s inclusion practice.

Ms. Middleton has a B.A. in journalism from Clark Atlanta University, and serves on the board of directors for Breakthrough Atlanta and Advertising for Change.
