This new role is focused primarily on creating valuable systems in the early years of our current fund, Fund IV, that can scale with time. Most recently, Jean led our Talent Team for nearly four years, directing hiring, culture and DEI initiatives, and HR functions. Her first role at CSGF included supporting the CEO and Investor Relations team on a variety of projects and key responsibilities. Prior to CSGF, Jean worked at Denver Public Schools as associate director in the academic and innovation office. Prior to that appointment, she served as vice president of organizational effectiveness at the Colorado Education Initiative. In that role, she was responsible for leading the project management office, talent development, and strategic plan monitoring.
