Committed to guiding leaders and organizations to healthy and diverse workplace cultures, Jennifer Brown is a passionate advocate and award-winning entrepreneur. After her dream of being an opera singer was derailed by a throat injury, Brown found her voice in a new way by teaching workplaces to sing in harmony using the voices of all their employees.
In 2006, she founded Jennifer Brown Consulting, LLC, to help large corporations get the best performance from their diverse employees. Now, with more than a dozen employees, JBC counts Cisco, MetLife, McKesson, Intuit, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, PricewaterhouseCoopers and more among their satisfied clients. With half a decade of success under her belt, Brown reflects on how she built a multi-million dollar, lesbian-owned business that creates more inclusive and productive workplaces for everyone.
Brown spoke with Shannon Wentworth on how she got started, what she's proud of, and how she transformed herself into a entrepreneur and business owner. For the full interview, head over to dot429.com.
