Ongoing Initiative to Feature Upcoming Webinar and Product Announcement
NEW YORK, NY – JULY 11, 2012 – Jennifer Brown Consulting (“JBC”), a boutique
workplace consulting firm, today announced the completion of its latest thought
leadership paper entitled Allies ‘Come Out’: How LGBT Allies Are Changing the
Face of Workplace Diversity and Inclusion, part of a new and broader JBC initiative
focused on the role allies can play in workplace inclusion. A term most commonly used
in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (“LGBT”) community, allies refers to
those who don’t identify as LGBT, but who share a commitment to inclusion for all, and
who are eager to contribute to corporate inclusion efforts by advocating on behalf of
under-represented workplace communities.
The white paper, commissioned by funding from corporate sponsors Alcoa and Cisco,
was further supported by contributions from UBS, as well as input from employees of
Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, ESPN, Barclays, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citi
and the Central Intelligence Agency.
According to CEO and Founder Jennifer Brown, “We are grateful for the support of these
forward-thinking organizations and individuals who, like JBC, believe that ally
engagement represents one of the newest, and perhaps most game-changing, trends in
diversity and inclusion. This paper serves as a roadmap for organizations and allies alike,
providing an overview of the mutual value propositions that can be gained. The case
study section offers an inside look at the exact steps several leading companies are taking
to successfully engage allies. Finally, JBC shares its predictions on the future of ally
engagement, identifying key emerging trends that are relevant to all organizations
looking to initiate and maintain effective strategies and programs.”
“The paper will be made available to sponsoring organizations and also attendees of our
upcoming August 2nd, 2012 webinar. We are also working towards creating a new
product offering centered on providing expertise, tools and guidance for companies and
professionals looking to establish their programs,” Ms. Brown continued.
JBC is in the business of transforming human potential, by creating more inclusive and
innovative workplaces, while aligning individual performance with organizational results.
JBC provides expert consulting, facilitation, coaching, workshops, and seminars to a
broad client base which includes such Fortune 500 companies as Cisco, Rockwell
