Inclusion is worth fighting for! Establishing and maintaining an inclusive workplace is an ongoing task, but any improvement in inclusion will inevitably improve the work-life for all involved. For example, Odyssey Impact® began instituting Mental Health Mondays to help those struggling with their mental health during the pandemic. These days have been a wonderful benefit for all, which have now become a permanent fixture at Odyssey Impact®.

As a part of my series about leaders helping to make the entertainment industry more diverse and representative, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Jenise Ogle.

Jenise Ogle is a social impact professional, currently serving as the Director of Diversity, Inclusion & Multicultural Impact at Odyssey Impact®, where she works closely with filmmakers, policymakers, and community organizations to raise awareness of pressing issues and drive social change. Prior to joining Odyssey Impact®, Jenise co-developed Save Our Moms, a Viacom campaign that encouraged 6 million people to take greater responsibility for maternal health, and co-led successful legislative campaigns to protect survivors of gender-based violence including changing the minimum age of marriage in New York from 14 to 17. She is the current Board President of the Black Coalition for Safe Motherhood, a nonprofit organization, which seeks to support Black maternal health through the promotion of healthcare advocacy and community support of birthing people.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”60px”][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner][ult_createlink title=”CONTINUE READING” btn_link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fmedium.com%2Fauthority-magazine%2Fhow-jenise-ogle-of-odyssey-impact-is-helping-to-make-the-entertainment-industry-more-diverse-and-b5aaf19f730b|target:_blank” link_hover_style=”Style_11″ text_color=”#ffffff” text_hovercolor=”#ffffff” background_color=”#f57c50″ bghovercolor=”#784c8e″ el_class=”nav-button” heading_style=”font-weight:bold;” css=”.vc_custom_1628867433700{padding-top: 10px !important;padding-right: 10px !important;padding-bottom: 10px !important;padding-left: 10px !important;}”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
