Mission Statement

    Diversity education in the workplace first began to emerge in the United States during the 1970’s, with much of the focus on Black-White racial issues, then sexism.
    During that time, efforts were primarily focused on training to increase sensitivity and legalese in order to protect corporations against civil rights suits.
    As awareness evolved, however, a ‘shame and blame’ dynamic resulted with diversity often framed as a problem, rather than the solution to the innovation companies need in order to thrive.
    Today, 80% of American corporations are engaged in diversity efforts, trying to create inclusive corporate cultures that also meet the needs of employees with ability differences, ethnic, religious, LGBTQ orientations, and other world views.
    After nearly five decades, it’s become apparent that the corporate world has still not found its footing.
    Harvard Business researchers found that 5 years after mandatory diversity programs are implemented, the number of Black, Latino, and Asian men and women actually goes down by as much as 9%, as does the number of White women.

    When it comes to groups who face challenges in corporate America, Glenn Diversity Inclusion & HR Solutions founder, Jackie Glenn checks every almost box:

    Immigrant
    Female
    Black

    Still, she was able to implore 10 core values that were the foundation for her rise from a nanny upon arrival to the U.S. from Jamaica, to top of the corporate ladder –  taking a seat at the table in the C-Suite in one of the biggest technology companies in the world.
    Glenn brings a unique and innovative perspectives to the D & I space. She has created internationally-recognized programs, resulting in authentically diverse and inclusive work forces around the globe.
    Evolution, however, has no match. The Census Bureau finds that minorities will be the majority population in the U.S. by 2050, and we are ‘woke’ in a way like never before in the post #Metoo world. GLENN DIVERSITY Inclusion & HR Solutions offers the wisdom, services, and support organizations and individuals need in order to reap the rewards of inclusive corporate cultures…Embodying the racial, cultural, gender sensitive, and sexual orientation sensibilities that are imperative to serve the diverse world we live in today.

    To quote U.S. President John F. Kennedy, ‘With privilege goes
    responsibility.’ I have had the privilege of getting to know amazing people on such a deep level, as well as character defining experiences in the corporate world. I founded GLENN DIVERSITY Inclusion & HR Solutions, out of that spirit of responsibility to show organizations and individuals how to embody the mantra that has served me best: Lift As I Climb.“
