WE MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR DEI AND INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP JOURNEY.

    Our Story

    Founded by renowned thought leader and author Jennifer Brown, Jennifer Brown Consulting (JBC) has been designing best-in-class workplace strategies that drive diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for some of the world’s leading organizations for nearly 20 years. As a proudly certified diverse supplier (WBENC and NGLCC), JBC specializes in the development of DEI strategy and thought leadership, in-person and online interactive education, and ERG formation and impact.

    JBC works across industries and sectors no matter where they are in their DEI journey.  Our clients include multinational corporations, middle-market and small companies, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies. 

    The JBC team is passionate about building a more inclusive future of work, encouraging leadership and allyship at all levels with concrete behaviors, actions, and measurements for success.

    Our Founder

    Jennifer Brown is a globally-recognized DEI thought leader, highly sought-after speaker, award-winning entrepreneur, and best-selling author. 

    Jennifer envisions inclusive organizations where all of us can thrive. As someone who has experienced both the advantages of privilege and the sting of stigma, Jennifer is boldly redefining what it means to truly belong—in the workplace, in our families, and in our communities.  She openly shares her powerful and unforgettable true story with audiences to help us challenge our assumptions—about ourselves, about leaders, and others—and take meaningful action today for a more inclusive tomorrow.

    Jennifer draws from her 20 years of experience working with leaders on their inclusive leader journey as they inspire groundbreaking conversations across locations, demographics, and cultural differences within their organization.  

    Over years of doing DEI work with countless organizations and leaders, Jennifer brings deep insight into the challenges organizations and leaders face today. Through keynote presentations, executive coaching, and senior leadership sessions, Jennifer educates and equips leaders to step into their role in the change effort.

    OUR PHILOSOPHY

    DEI IS NOT COMPLIANCE WORK.

    In our experience—and when practiced the right way—DEI is soul-healing, culture-transforming work that everyone can benefit from, not only for their teams and organizations, but to unlock their own full potential.

    We demonstrate how implementing long-term DEI strategies gives leaders access to their most authentic selves, so that they can open up that possibility for their employees, their colleagues, and their communities.

    In our work, we are constantly reminded of the possibilities that effective DEI strategies can unlock on a company, community, and societal level. Getting there takes time, thoughtful planning and accountability, and a collective practice of compassion — JBC can be your coach and accountability partner at every step along the way.

    We’re not in the business of shaming or blaming our clients. None of us moves through life without internalizing bias, and just as we learn it we can unlearn it. JBC is here to help you see what’s possible with a custom-made and thoughtfully implemented DEI strategy, and to guide you forward.
