Rozella Kennedy leads Camber’s Impact and Equity work, which includes developing, curating, and disseminating information, resources and events that: support team competency in intersectional equity and anti-racism; build internal team belonging, ways of working, and culture of learning and celebration (in which team members feel seen, supported, connected, and galvanized); and connect these values to the firm’s external work, influence, and impact through equitable project design methodologies at the intersection of U.S. paradigms and the global contexts within which we work.
