Embrace diversity and thrive as an organization

Here at Jennifer Brown Consulting, we’ve always been focused on unleashing the power of human potential, embracing diversity, and helping people—and organizations—to thrive.

Which is why, after years of channeling a combined 250+ years of experience to resolve some of the Fortune 500’s toughest challenges around diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging, we’ve decided to package our deep expertise in human capital and talent management into a unique training opportunity not currently available in this format anywhere else in the world.

Modules:

  • Getting to Know You

    DE&I Practitioners are most effective when they utilize the strength of colleagues, and JBC is creating a cohort for you to engage with. This pre-module will offer you some of the foundational DE&I resources as well as an online "meet and greet" with colleagues around the globe. As each module is completed, additional resources will be unlocked for you.

  • Becoming an Expert

    The first step to becoming an effective DE&I practitioner is understanding what DE&I means to you on a personal level. Intrapersonal exploration will help you create an authentic and integral presence that invites the allyship necessary to move the needle. JBC will provide you with the tools and forums you need to maximize the impact of your DE&I story to build allyship at the interpersonal, group, coalition and organizational levels.

  • Diagnosing Your Organization

    The ultimate measure of DE&I success is behavior change. JBC will provide you with essential tools and methods to find out how DE&I lives in your organization and the core ingredients you must learn to balance to spark a sustainable culture change effort. Find out how to create urgency and leverage allyship to launch, build and sustain a successful culture change effort that maximizes the performance of your organization by attracting the best diverse talent and providing them with an inclusive workplace where they can thrive and innovate.

  • Crafting Your DE&I Strategy

    As a DE&I Practitioner, you will guide your organization towards enhanced engagement and talent retention with a well-crafted people-focused DE&I Strategic Plan with an Implementation Roadmap. Because there are different interpretations of "how all work is done by people," your DE&I Strategic Plan will encompass the why, what and how elements so there is clarity on behavioral performance expectations with the understanding of flexibility on how individuals will implement the initiatives.

  • Executing Your DE&I Strategy

    After your DE&I Strategic Plan is approved by the Senior Executives, intentional efforts will need to be made to clearly communicate behavioral expectations with measurable results. By clearly identifying performance expectations, at all levels, needed to efficiently and effectively implement the DE&I Strategic Plan, metrics can be assessed for achievement in concert with your organization's mission.
