Inclusion & Diversity is A Top Priority for Senior Leaders | Jennifer Brown, Founder and CEO
"I just wanted to extend a huge thank you on behalf of all of our leaders and the entire DEI team and Talent Management Team at CUNA Mutual Group. Your presentation was amazing and we are already receiving so much positive feedback! It will surely make an impact on all of our leaders and continue to advance our DEI journey as a company. Jennifer, thank you again. We are so grateful for your time and energy!"
"Jennifer’s story is unique compared to others I’ve heard in similar presentations. The audience was completely focused on the subject and her content. The message is very important today. All of the media sources are full of messages that sometimes embrace inclusion and other times are offensive. Jennifer was an extremely effective speaker and the audience loved her. My favorite discussions were on covering and bias. Both are with us every day and we might not realize the huge impact they are making in our workplaces."
"Thank you for leading an engaging conversation as we kick-off Pride month. I’ve received very positive feedback from attendees and your stewardship was critical to its success."
"The feedback that I have heard thus far in regard to your session has been incredibly positive. You spoke about diversity and inclusion in such a way that our attendees were truly able to connect with you and understand the significance of this topic in the business world today."
"Jennifer Brown was AMAZING; her vulnerability was inspiring. Jennifer Brown's session was a fantastic way to set the tone of the meeting! Extremely powerful and rich in content!"
