Stacey A. Gordon

CEO and Founder of Rework Work

Stacey A. Gordon is CEO of Rework Work which provides a 360-degree view to re-imagining work. As a diversity consultant with recruiting expertise, she is at the helm of an organization focused on reworking how companies work. That includes how they recruit, hire and engage women and professionals of color. Frustrated with hearing that companies don’t have the resources or are unable to identify skilled diverse professionals, Stacey combined her diversity & inclusion knowledge with her recruiting expertise to create education workshops, leadership development and provide other resources to help companies with their ‘pipeline’ problem.

Aware that top talent sometimes has a problem self-identifying, Stacey is a highly-rated career coach and is a member of Forbes Coaching Council. She is also an Advisory Board Member and mentor to UCLA Extension Coding Bootcamp and has established Rework Work as a corporate training partner for conferences across the country. She was recognized by Pepperdine University as a Top 40 Over 40 Leader, was a finalist for Los Angeles Business Journal’s Women Helping Women Award and was recognized by Forbes as a Top 3 Business Leader Who Spoke Out About Diversity & Inclusion in 2017.

With an MBA from Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business & Management, Stacey is an Adjunct Professor teaching Diversity in Organizations at Phillips Graduate University, the former President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Association of African Americans in Human Resources and manages programs for Professionals In Human Resources Association, the largest SHRM affiliate in the country.
