Jennifer Moore leads Initiate Equity, a private education consulting organization that supports school teams and educational non-profits in analyzing the distinguishable, yet often hidden ways racism, privilege and power impact an organization’s success. Jennifer leads cross-functional teams to leverage high-impact strategies that directly address racism and its manifestations at the individual, interpersonal and institutional level. Through this approach Jennifer helps organizations go beyond the limited frame of “bad actors” who commit racist acts, to one that encompasses a systems-level analysis to determine which specific policies and practices are contributing to inequity.
Prior to consulting, Jennifer worked for Teach For America-New Jersey where she led a major overhaul of their teacher development program to prioritize culturally relevant pedagogy as a framework for new teacher development. She began her journey in education as a New York City public school teacher where she brought her passion for social justice to her work in the South Bronx.
