Long Bio:
Jennifer McClanahan-Flint is an Executive Career Strategist & Consultant and the founder of Leverage to Lead. Before starting her business, she worked on Wall Street in Investment Banking Recruiting and then spent 15 years as a Law Firm Administration in national firms with a focus on business development and human resources. 

Since 2010, Jennifer has advised hundreds of leaders on how to leverage their talents and differences to help them navigate bias, negotiate their compensation, and expand their careers. Her work helps people face their careers with audacity rather than apprehension.

Learning to leverage your difference is one of the greatest skills you can develop.

Jennifer’s work with individual clients also led to repeated engagements with organizations that understood that leveraging the talents and differences of their employees results in higher productivity and stronger teams.  These organizations wanted the insight that Jennifer had developed by engaging one-on-one with her clients of color.

Jennifer built a process under Leverage to Lead that helps organizations create diverse and equitable plans and practices by opening space for all perspectives. She designed presentations and professional development training that underscore the personal relevance of diversity for everyone and every role in an organization.

Jennifer’s work as an Executive Career Strategist & Consultant has led her to support people across banking, legal, tech, medical, and education industries and sectors. She has worked with clients from large organizations such as Baker McKenzie, Skadden, Reed Smith, DLA Piper, Georgetown University, GAP, JP Morgan Chase, Facebook, Salesforce, and Google to entrepreneurs building their practices and companies.


She has presented at the Gap, Skadden, Duke’s Fuqua School of Business, NALP, CATDC Leaders of Color Conference, Foley & Lardner, The Branson School, and Headlands Center for the Arts.
