Jean-Marie Navetta: Director of Equality & Diversity Partnerships

     

Jean-Marie Navetta is the Director of Equality Partnerships for PFLAG National. In her position, she heads up the organization's Straight for Equality campaign which aims to involve more straight allies in efforts to achieve equality for all.

The project, launched in October 2007, focuses in three primary areas: the workplace, home, and faith communities. Thousands of people have signed on to support Straight for Equality’s work.

She is the project’s primary workplace trainer and developed Straight for Equality in the Workplace, a series of trainings to help make the business case for equality and assist organizations in creating a truly supportive culture that goes beyond just policies. Under her leadership more than 5,000 have been trained in Straight for Equality programs.

Prior to her work with Straight for Equality, she was PFLAG National’s Director of Communications. Jean-Marie has also worked with the American Association of University Women and led her own consulting group.

Jean-Marie is, most importantly, living proof that people with philosophy degrees do in fact have job potential beyond "freelance philosopher". She can be reached by e-mailing jnavetta@pflag.org.
