Since then, Collective has grown into a diverse team of DEI practitioners spearheading inclusive workplace cultures and policies for millennial-driven brands like Spotify, Glossier, and Food52.
Kellie’s thought-leading work on inclusive recruiting, intersectionality, and mental health has been featured in Forbes, GQ, and New York Magazine, and she has been a featured speaker at places like Culture Amp's Culture First conference, HR Redefined, The Muse, and The Wing.
