    What People are Saying about Seeing Jeannine Speak

    Rating Entries

    “Effective with both leadership and staff. As one C-Suite leader said, “approach with the team opened us up to conversations we’ve never had as a leadership team before.” I highly recommend Jeannine Carter, as a Diversity and Inclusion expert, an outstanding HR Leader, and as a great team member. Jeannine was hired by Newmont, a nearly 100 year old, Fortune 300 global company, as the Corporation’s first Director of Inclusion and Diversity, with the mission to develop from scratch a successful, high impact, long term inclusion strategy for the company. In this, Jeannine succeeded way beyond our expectations, in creating a very sustainable long term global strategy for the company, implementing new diversity and inclusion policies and guidelines, launching Newmont’s first Business Resource Groups, and in building strong support for the program with our global employees, management, executive team and Board of Directors. Building on the strategies Jeannine implemented, Newmont is now seen as a leader in Inclusion and Diversity, in our industry and in the Fortune 500. We are very fortunate to have had Jeannine get us started, and her strong strategic and change management skills would be of high value to any organization.”
    – Newmont

    She helped in “connecting with my team on a deeper level and building trust and openness gives us even more support and power in our daily work”.

    She “finds ways to weave in personal stories, current events, historical references all while engaging employees in the discussion”.
