Kimberly Manns

CEO, H3 Diversity

Kim is a passionate leader with a talent for supporting diverse stakeholders coming together to solve challenges of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Her career in diversity, equity, and inclusion began over 15 years ago, in brand management at Procter and Gamble, where she led multicultural marketing for major company brands. Following her time at Procter and Gamble, she served the Mayor of Baltimore as Deputy Director of Policy and Communications and joined the staff of the Commit Partnership in Dallas, a local non-profit focused on addressing educational inequities. In each of these roles, she focused on a systems approach to decrease educational and economic disparities.

Kim served as an executive coach for the Social Change for Leadership Program at Stagen Leadership Academy, a 52-week leadership program designed to amplify and elevate the voices of powerful women leaders. As an executive coach, Kim specializes in issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Kim’s approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (head, heart, and hands) stems from her passion and expertise in personal leadership development, deep work in supporting equitable policy through her service in the non-profit and public sectors, and talent for translating challenges into sustainable strategies.

Kim also has a certificate in Diversity and Inclusion from Cornell University and is certified in the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation Behavior (FIRO-B) Assessment. She has a B.A. in Marketing and International Business
