Twitter, Vice President of Diversity Partnership Strategy and Engagement
As vice president of diversity partnership strategy and engagement at Twitter, Candi Castleberry-Singleton is focused on building trust, advancing inclusivity in our industry and diverse communities through partnerships with NGOs, academia, and corporations, resulting in Twitter being recognized as a true leader for its commitment and collaboration. A visionary and change-agent, she is the founder of the award-winning Dignity & Respect Campaign, which helps organizations create environments of dignity and respect.
Candi’s business acumen enhances her approach of partnering with senior executives, business process owners, and community leaders to build sustainable practices for the workplace, marketplace, and community. A recognized leader, she has been awarded as one of the 100 Most Influential Women in Corporate America by Savoy Magazine.
Candi recounts the highlight of her Graziadio experience as her international immersion with her cohort in Asia. She gained first-hand insight into the work culture and impact of the healthcare, law, and manufacturing industry.
Candi has delivered inspiring keynote and lectures around the world, one being in Washington, D.C. sharing the stage with then-Senator Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton. By far, one of her most treasured life experiences was spending a weekend at the home of the late Dr. Maya Angelou, learning about her and the stories of her life.

Youtube, Chief Business Officer
As chief business officer for video-sharing website Youtube, where 300 hours of video are uploaded every minute, Robert Kyncl oversees business functions, including content, sales, marketing, platforms, access, and strategy. Prior to Youtube, Robert was vice president of content acquisitions at Netflix, where he spearheaded the company’s content acquisition for streaming TV shows and movies over the Internet. Growing up in the Czech Republic, under the constraints of the iron curtain, Robert developed important values, which motivates him to make a positive contribution to the world.
Throughout his career, Robert has leveraged his Graziadio skills, lessons and values, applying them to challenging projects. While at Graziadio, Robert recalls courses requiring team building and team brainstorming, which he learned were essential to a business and understanding new and differing perspectives. Robert has been listed in Variety’s Dealmakers Impact Report as one of their “disruptors,” Vanity Fair’s New Establishment List, Billboard's Power 100 List and AdWeek's 50 List of Media, Marketing and Tech Leaders.
