Rave Reviews About Jeannine Carter
'Effective with both leadership and staff.' As one C-Suite leader said, 'her 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 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.
