Brendon-Jeremi Jobs – The role of the diversity director – PT 2

By Jen Cort

Jen Cort is an education consultant in the areas of equity, inclusion, diversity and justice. In this podcast, Jen opens up a "third space"— a place outside our familiar home and work environments — in order that we might begin to engage in some of the provocative questions that need to be addressed. Listen in as Jen speaks with some of the leading thinkers and doers in the field.

Brendon promotes equity and inclusion as Director of Diversity & Inclusion at the Haverford School for Boys. A veteran educator of the Philadelphia School District, Brendon has taught for over 12 years. His development as an educator has been largely self-directed, but indelibly shaped by experiences as a James Madison Fellow, Lehrman Fellow, a National Constitution Center Annenberg Fellow, an Education Pioneer with the SEED Foundation in Washington D.C., and an active member of Philadelphia’s teacher leader community via work with Teacher Action Group (TAG). Ongoing training with Penn GSE’s Racial Empowerment Collaborative and the Race Institute informs his approach to imagining and building inclusive communities.
