EVP, Human Resources
Traditional “off the shelf” DEI content or solutions simply wasn’t going to inspire our employees, nor was it going to be a catalyst for meaningful and sustainable growth.
Jess's program promoted reflection and is sparking continued action and engagement across our leadership and employee base. She has been referred to as a “National Treasure” by our people.
“She handles it so well and it makes it feel genuine. These are creating conversations with teams.
This training actually spurred a very vigorous debate in our team meeting today. We even delayed other meetings to continue the convo.”
I advise businesses on how to better reflect people within their media, marketing, advertising, + workforce, translating cultural insights into dynamic campaigns, partnerships + internal employee programs that better reflect the world around us.
I know how to help businesses and organizations make real change from the inside out.
Not only does this approach create more loyalty + commitment from employees + consumers but this work creates tangible business success.
I help major brands and companies connect to their communities + stay competitive in their industries.
Because better representation and inclusivity isn’t a ‘nice to have’, it’s a ‘need to have’ for all businesses.
Proud of my partners at Barbie + Mattel for embracing the challenges of the pandemic and focusing on what really matters.
If you’ve been following this incredible brand transformation, Barbie continues to focus on inclusivity and gender equality and they utilize the power of a platform like theirs to change the way kids see themselves and the world around them.
As we see a renewed focus on developing more social empathy, we are also seeing first hand how doll play can help to teach that empathy.
"A doll that can help change the world," indeed.
