DEI Advocate, Consultant, Entrepreneur, Writer

Jamie Ousterout (she/her) is a Certified Diversity Executive (CDE)® and Chief Experience Officer at The Diversity Movement. Based in Raleigh, NC, The Diversity Movement enables organizations to build and strengthen culture by tying real-world business outcomes to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives via a scalable subscription-based employee experience platform.

Jamie graduated from Cornell University in 2009 with a bachelor of arts in English and history and has since worked in a variety of client service, project management, and operational roles. She is also founder and owner of Stabilimenta, an operational strategy consulting firm. At The Diversity Movement, Jamie creates employee-first, inclusive workplaces for both clients and The Diversity Movement’s internal employees.

Jamie serves on the board for Raleigh City Farm, a non-profit urban farm in downtown Raleigh that strives to connect and nourish the Triangle community through regenerative agriculture. She also volunteers as an alumni admissions ambassador for Cornell University conducting informational meetings for potential incoming students.

Why DEI? I grew up watching Sesame Street and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. I grew up learning that everyone is special and should be loved for who they are and treated with respect. I think as adults, we sometimes forget these important lessons we learned in childhood. Diversity, equity, and inclusion matters to me because  The Diversity Movement engages with people in their place of work—we are hopefully changing their perspectives and behavior. And then these people can share their new perspectives and behaviors with their families, their friends, and their communities. Hopefully, we will be able to achieve the world that Sesame Street and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood taught me about as a child.
