February 14, 2022
Four Penn GSE alumni working to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion

In a time of a national awakening and reckoning about race, inequality, and long-overdue social justice, efforts to value diversity, promote equity, and foster inclusive environments have gained renewed attention.

“What could be possible if universities and even K–12 institutions were redesigned to be places where everyone could thrive?” asks Jessica Guerrero, GED’09, global head of diversity, equity, and inclusion for Google’s Cloud Go-to-Market (GTM) division. A recent article in The Penn GSE Magazine discusses how Guerrero and three other Penn GSE alumni are striving to advance these areas through their roles at an education nonprofit, a middle school, a state university, and a tech company.

These leaders report drawing upon their life experiences and insights gained at Penn GSE as they undertake the complex work of cultivating opportunity and support for students and employees. If you’re a higher education professional looking to deepen your understanding and develop your leadership in these areas, Penn GSE’s Race, Diversity, and Equity in Higher Education certificate program could be a good fit.
