I absolutely could not wait to have this conversation! This is legit one of the few podcasts I actually planned the topic of conversation. I knew JeNae would bring the passion, insight, and just all around a great conversation that would be fun, and inspiring! In this episode, we talk about JeNae's mission to eradicate systemic racism in corporate culture, her beloved Howard University, and what it was like hearing the news about Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, and of course the question everyone is asked on this podcast. What does JeNae want her legacy to be?
I rescue geniuses. This is the mantra and belief that JeNae Johnson operates as a leading consultant. Starting with the premise that everyone has genius within them, JeNae equips leaders and teams with proper tools, guidance, strategy and courage to accomplish their business objectives.
Her approach to forging a path for racial equity in the workplace is no different. Leaning into her experience in behavior change, JeNae leverages proven methodologies and strategies to help companies build equitable workplaces. She partners with executives and ERG leaders to gauge the effectiveness of current DEI initiatives and identify specific focus areas for change.
She created Bold x Brave Conversations(TM)—a facilitated workshop for leaders to start engaging their teams in productive conversations about race and disparity that ultimately lead to strategic action.
JeNae’s team at CTM Unlimited has also created a strategic framework known as Project Equity to help organizations define the future state for an equitable workplace and create short term and long term strategies to build and sustain equity and inclusion for its workforce.
