The corporate culture architect, career development advisor, and diversity pioneer is the author of the critically acclaimed book, “Lift As I Climb: An Immigrant Girl’s Journey Through Corporate America.” She is presenting on each of the 10 core values that she’s used in her career and personal life.
“Jackie has had an astounding career, including her tenure at EMC as its Chief Diversity Officer (CDO), where she brought international recognition to its corporate culture and pioneered many of today’s best practices in diversity, equity, and inclusion space,” said Mike Volpe, CEO at Lola.com. “At Lola.com, we strive for a diverse and inclusive work environment and believe in sharing successful practices to help other organizations. We are honored to have Jackie impart her years of very unique and admirable experience in this area with our attendees.”
Glenn began her career in the technology sector at the Fortune 500 EMC Corporation in human resources in the year 2000. Her adaptation to American culture as an immigrant from Jamaica and cultivated skills and insights uniquely qualified her to lead EMC’s efforts to create a diverse workforce and an environment that would retain top talent from around the globe.
At EMC, Glenn progressed to Global Chief Diversity Officer, overseeing a workforce of 60,000 employees around the world. She conceived, planned, and developed programs in organizational development, leadership consulting, as well as employee training and development. Glenn lifted EMC’s entire corporate culture to international recognition and acclaim by pioneering many of today’s best practices in diversity and inclusion.
During her tenure, she created a ground-breaking transgender reassignment and benefits program, multiple women’s corporate advancement immersion experiences, and recruiting partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), featuring a summer internship that builds a pipeline of high potential future employees in the STEM field. EMC merged with Dell Computer in 2016. During the transition, Glenn served in the role of Global Vice President of Diversity & Inclusion, and oversaw the melding of corporate cultures for the combined entity and its new workforce totaling 150,000 employees worldwide.
Her book, “Lift As I Climb – An Immigrant Girl’s Journey Through Corporate America,” is an instructional biography of how she employed her 10 self-created gems to provide guidance through her journey from a Nanny to Vice President & Chief Diversity Officer at Dell EMC, to an author and CEO.
