Jocelyn recently authored “Beyond Unconscious Bias: 7 Tips for Transformative Racial Equity Trainings” on Medium.

She is the Director of Code2040’s Company Culture Transformation program that envisions a world in which workplaces center their Black and Latinx employees’ experiences when designing solutions, policies, processes, and systems. Where our joy, brilliance, history, accomplishments are celebrated and amplified for the whole industry to see and feel. The Code2040 team is small (but mighty!) focusing on building company culture transformation in the innovation economy through intentional training strategies and consulting.

Prior to Code2040, Jocelyn was an internal Equity & Inclusion champion in both the tech and non profit sector. Working at she led their first Diversity & Inclusion initiative focused on building more inclusive recruiting practices and designing spaces for employees to sit in conversations about race and privilege. At the Human Rights Campaign supporting their first company-wide Diversity & Inclusion assessment while rolling out an Employee Resource Group structure and unionizing staff for higher wages and better overtime policies.

Jocelyn is a queer, feminist, Aquarian, Latina. When she’s not dreaming of a racially equitable tech industry where Black and Brown folks thrive, she’s probably off reading a book, dancing to house and soul tunes, doing some light community organizing, or watching trashy TV with her partner. Chopped, anyone?
