MindWorks Collaborative
As a new Executive Director at a startup nonprofit Jenni was a blessing to work with on figuring out our marketing and development strategies. Not only did she support our leadership but she also supported our board and provided training and guidance in the areas of communication/marketing and development. Even when we hired a social media consultant to execute our communications vision Jenni was able to help. She also constantly connected us to other nonprofits and service providers who could support us along the way in the areas where she could not.

MindWorks Collaborative is based in the Greater Washington DC area, and their mission is to attract and retain special education leaders who mirror the cultural diversity of special education students. The majority of special education students, especially in urban and rural areas, are black and Latino/a. However, about 75-80% of special education teachers are white women. I worked with MindWorks Collaborative in the beginning stages of their organization to create a strategic marketing strategy and comprehensive development strategy.
