Carol Newell is an Organizational Development Consultant at Briggs & Stratton. Some of her responsibilities include creating and driving a diversity & inclusion strategy which involves developing and cultivating partnership with diverse organizations and leading the women’s employee resource group at Briggs.
Carol has lived in Milwaukee since 1982. Her mother moved her and her sister into the city after accepting a better job opportunity as a Milwaukee Public Schools teacher.
Her favorite Professional Dimensions event has been Judge Derek Mosley’s presentation on Implicit Bias in the Judicial System. She had recently completed Jury Service, so the presentation resonated greatly with her as she observed bias, including her own, throughout the process.
Something about Carol that we can’t find on her resume is that she served as a member of the Army Reserve for a total of one whole year. It’s a very long and interesting story, she says, but the short story is she did not pursue a career in the Army Reserve for medical reasons.
Be sure to ask Carol about this story and more when you see her at the next Professional Dimensions function!
