Introducing Our Keynote Speaker Jackie Glenn

Jackie Glenn is a pioneering Diversity and Inclusion expert who lives by the mantra, “It’s better to be respected than liked.” Her groundbreaking initiatives have reshaped organizational policies, unified a multidimensional corporate culture, and generated international interest and intrigue. By proving she is her word, solidifying business relationships, and securing overwhelming buy-in, Jackie was pivotal in guiding Fortune 500 EMC Corporation to personify its brand of innovation in the global community.

An engaging public speaker, Jackie begins every presentation with “Hi, I’m Jackie Glenn and I hail from the island of Jamaica!” That statement alone demonstrates what Jackie values—authenticity and confidence as defined by experience. Jackie emanates positivity and enthusiasm for what life offers and she is dedicated to creating a corporate environment that embodies inclusivity, energy, and a mentality for change and growth.

She initiated a series of industry-recognized best practices, including a groundbreaking transgender reassignment and benefits program and multiple women’s corporate advancement immersion experiences.

Jackie formed recruiting partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities, featuring a summer internship that built a pipeline of high-potential future STEM employees. She introduced corporate-wide affinity circles that acknowledged the power of influence when like-minded individuals join forces.

As a result of these initiatives, DiversityInc listed EMC as a Top 25 Noteworthy Company and Disability Matters named EMC a Leading Employer.
