Join us for a Virtual Diversity Series every Thursday starting September 17th to October 22nd presented by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council! Our fourth session on October 8th is titled "Will the Real Ally Please Stand Up?".
About this session:
Over the course of five years, Jenny and Kerri navigated the complexities of transforming a workforce to be needs-responsive to a diverse employee-base. Together, the two taught each other the ins and outs of their own roles and in turn, helped move their organization forward towards true inclusion.
Jenny is a marketing and business consultant working with a diverse range of clients to support their marketing, branding and communications needs. Currently, Jenny also serves as the Executive Director of the Back Mountain Chamber, a non-profit membership organization formed to promote business, economic growth and community.
She is a graduate of College Misericordia — now Misericordia University — and has held marketing and leadership positions at some of the region’s most recognizable employers.
Jenny lived in the world before the “Ellen on-air kiss,” and has watched nursing mothers come back to work without appropriate considerations, breaks and support. She’s energized by so many organizations’ efforts to truly become more diverse — shifting from having a written diversity policy tucked away in employee handbooks to authentic and visible strides towards inclusion.
Her interest in diversity is supported by incredible friends and colleagues who are willing to share their lived experiences and knowledge. She is always learning and is eternally grateful to her favorite resources and teachers.
Kerri Price, ALM, BA
Kerri currently serves as the Senior Manager of Campaign Operations for MNG Health.
She holds a Master’s Degree in Management from Harvard University, a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Rowan University and is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in Business Administration.
Her passion for diversity comes from within. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and from her experiences on boards and leadership teams of community organizations, she has experienced first hand the importance of diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace and beyond.
Together with past and current employers, Kerri works to continually break down barriers of misunderstanding with the goal of identifying the ROI behind multicultural workforces.
