Prior to Bellwether, Denzell worked as a consultant at Deloitte delivering human capital strategy solutions in diversity and inclusion, performance management, and workplace culture for government and nonprofit clients.

Why I do this work: Growing up in New York City is, for many, a tale of two cities — good neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods, good schools and bad schools. I am a child of immigrants, and my family believed education was the primary accelerator to a good life. I believe a good education — in addition to meaningful holistic social services — should be the standard, not the exception.
