“Throughout my career in social services, I have been committed to using my talents to help improve the lives of families and individuals in the communities I have had the honor to serve."
A quote from National Equity Fund's SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer, Jaclyn Jackson, who was featured in the Village Free Press last week to celebrate a major accomplishment!
Earlier this summer, Jackie was selected for the prestigious Leadership Greater Chicago Signature Fellows Program, an initiative that has included Former First Lady Michelle Obama, former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx. As a member of the 2023 cohort, which spans the corporate, nonprofit, government and education sectors, Jackie joins 53 other civic leaders to help transform the future of Chicago and build a more inclusive city.
Jackson has been with NEF since August 2020, leading talent development, strategic planning and marketing & communications. Before joining NEF, she worked as Vice President for a variety of nonprofits, from serving individuals with disabilities, to foster children, to women who were victims of sex trafficking.
We know that Jackie is incredibly proud to be selected as a changemaker in the region and we are honored and grateful to have her as an influential member of our team.
Congratulations to Jackie and all the other outstanding members of the Class of 2023.
