Diversity, Equity, and the Future of Volunteering

SOURCE: Common Impact


Jerome Tennille, Manager of Social Impact & Volunteerism at Marriott International, joins host Danielle Holly for a dynamic conversation on the state of volunteering and employee engagement. Jerome shares how Marriott, a major figure in the hospitality industry that was hit so hard by COVID-19, has reimagined service for the current moment by taking it online, but also his perspective that the future of volunteering is not virtual.

From his viewpoint as the leader of his own social impact consultancy, Jerome shares powerful insights on the need for greater diversity and equity in the nonprofit sector at the professional, leadership, and volunteer levels. Plus, he addresses systemic power imbalances between companies and the nonprofits they volunteer with and how we can right them.
