As the Founder and Executive Sponsor of EquALL, Jessica has been a strong advocate for the creation of what Hill+Knowlton calls ‘a louder culture of equality’. Last summer, the firm created and hosted a series of open conversations, reaching 200 of 227 people in the agency through a series of five 50-minute conversations where employees could talk about racial justice and being black at H+K. Jessica co-organized this discussion series, earning CEO buy in, and showed up at every conversation. Following those listening sessions, EquALL developed a fourth workstream dedicated specifically to race and justice, and Jessica supervised a team of three young people to curate a race and justice resource library, which was shared globally to drive learning and support change. Jessica’s proudest achievement this year was implementing a level-appropriate performance metric on equity, diversity and inclusion for every person in the firm.
