Governor Eric J. Holcomb today announced the appointment of Greg Wilson as Executive Director of the Indiana Civil Rights Commission (ICRC).

In this role, Wilson will oversee the commission that enforces civil rights laws, investigates discrimination complaints and educates organizations, companies, landlords, associations and individuals on their rights and responsibilities under Indiana Civil Rights Laws.

Wilson will also lead the team overseeing Indiana’s five cultural commissions including the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Indiana Holiday Commission, the Indiana Commission for Hispanic/Latino Affairs, the Indiana Commission for Women, the Indiana Commission for the Social Status of Black Males and the Indiana Native American/Indiana Affairs Commission.

“Greg has years of community-engagement experience, demonstrating both his leadership abilities and his commitment to Indiana’s minority groups,” Governor Holcomb said. “He will serve Hoosiers well as the head of Indiana’s Civil Rights Commission, and I look forward to continued partnership with Greg as we take Indiana to the next level.”

Wilson has a longstanding public service career, including community engagement for then Lt. Gov. Holcomb and most recently was Special Assistant to the Governor. His previous roles included developing and growing relationships with local, state and federal officials, sustaining and enhancing engagement efforts with key community leaders and deepening collaboration with state agency representatives.
