Kerrien is director of Equity in the Center, a new collaborative initiative being launched through ProInspire. Equity in the Center addresses a gap in philanthropic and nonprofit organizations’ current DEI practice: The absence of sector-validated organizational development and change management best practices to shift mindsets, tactics, and systems that drive racial and ethnic diversity at all levels.
With over 19 years of management and consulting experience, Kerrien has supported executive and leadership teams in bold decision making to solve strategic and operational challenges. As an independent consultant, she managed strategic and implementation planning projects for ProInspire, UNCF, National Black Child Development Institute, National Center for Children in Poverty and Martha’s Table.
Her practice’s increasing focus on diversity, equity and inclusion developed through support of emerging leaders in education reform and social enterprise. Through Surge Institute, Camelback Ventures and EdFuel, she supports emerging and established leaders of color working to define school and community-based solutions that drive educational equity.
Kerrien’s career in management consulting began at AT Kearney and The Advisory Board. Most recently, she led engagements at Community Wealth Partners. She is a graduate of Harvard College and London School of Economics.
