Exciting news from Jennifer Brown Consulting!  

 

Friends, 

Spring has sprung! It’s such a favorite time of year - for growth, renewal, and new beginnings. 

In that spirit, we’re excited to share about a fantastic new partnership and investment in our future. Over the last 20 years, JBC has worked with thousands of clients across every industry, and every size, to design best-in-class workplace strategies that drive more inclusive cultures where everyone can thrive. I am so proud of the impact our team has made, and will continue to make, under the auspices of this new collaboration. 

It’s imperative for me to ensure this critical work is embedded into every possible domain within business and leadership, and to reach a broader set of potential allies and advocates, who will drive this long after our time. Our commitment to continuing the work of DEI has never been stronger, and I also believe, in the words of a well-known coach, “what got us here won’t get us there”. We now have the opportunity to greatly expand our capabilities with a sensational team of experts who are shaping inclusive organizations of the future. We must reach new audiences, in new ways - make bold choices, challenge previous approaches -  and throughout, keep listening deeply and more broadly. 

It is with this opportunity in mind that we will be uniting the JBC consulting practice with the mission-driven consulting firm, changeforce, a tech-enabled management consulting company. At the same time, changeforce has acquired Mathison, a leading DEI tech software that will augment the combined offerings with a data-driven platform to manage and track DEI efforts, goals, and education. 

This new combination of these three organizations now enables us to offer the most robust end-to-end consulting and technology platform for DEIB in the market, with the vision of helping organizations solve their biggest DEI challenges through an integrated approach. I’m excited to introduce you in the coming weeks to someone I’ll be partnering with closely on this vision going forward, changeforce co-founder Dr. Nabeel Ahmad, Columbia Professor and veteran in human capital management who leads the People & Organizations practice at changeforce. 

In addition to doing principal-level consulting for changeforce and continuing my focus on developing leaders for the future of work, I will continue to write, coach, and speak across the country and internationally (Copenhagen and Milan this Spring, and a slew of other presentations, many for Pride, of course!) More about that can always be found at www.jenniferbrownspeaks.com. If you’re receiving this newsletter, you’ll remain on my list and be kept up to date on my activities. And of course, my commitment to being certified as woman and LGBT-owned will continue.

In closing, I am so deeply grateful for the privilege of continuing this work, and cannot wait to share more about our expanded capabilities and this incredible group of new collaborators and innovators in the coming weeks. If you’d like to explore how we can support your DEI goals, please contact my colleague Robert Beaven, at robert.beaven@changeforce.ai
