Jessica Cohen is originally from Phoenix, Arizona and slowly made her way East living in Austin, Texas and Northwest Arkansas prior to moving to New York City. She studied Design and Business at Arizona State University and has a diverse background in retail merchandising and creative operations. Jessica is passionate about mentoring, teaching and training. Jessica values community and connection. She supports and participates in mentor programs and tri-faith events to create connections within her community. These passions are what motivated her to participate in the 2017-2018 Glass Leadership Institute class, and drive her continued involvement with ADL, serving on the NY/NJ NextGen Executive Board as the Glass Institute Co-Chair. Jessica looks forward to supporting the efforts of building a community network of Glass Alumni across the country in an effort to support continued ADL involvement for Glass Alumni post graduation.
What are you most looking forward to as a new member of the GLI AAB?
Meeting other members from across the country, and learning more about ADL on a national scale!
What do you hope the board (or you as a member of the board) will accomplish and/or help solve within this year?
I'd love to increase post-Glass participation year over year across the country!
