Jennifer Brown is a leading diversity and inclusion expert, dynamic keynote speaker, best-selling author, award-winning entrepreneur and host of The Will To Change podcast, which uncovers true stories of diversity and inclusion. As the founder, president and CEO of Jennifer Brown Consulting, Jennifer’s workplace strategies have been employed by some of the world’s top Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits—including Walmart, Microsoft, Starbucks and many others— to help employees bring their full selves to work and feel Welcomed, Valued, Respected and Heard.

On this episode, you will hear Jennifer talk about:

  • How her background in nonprofit work, opera singing and off-Broadway theater performance led to her career in training & development
  • How a corporate layoff led her to reposition herself in her career and start her own diversity & inclusion consulting firm
  • What to do if you feel like your career or your workplace might not be a match for you
  • The damaging impact of bias and stereotypes on individuals and businesses, and what leaders can do about it
  • Her own experience with “bringing her full self to work” as an LGBTQ+ woman
  • Her belief that everyone has a diversity story, and how this realization can lead to more inclusive conversations
