Jenny Pratt is a dedicated nonprofit executive with a strong commitment to helping nonprofits thrive through a lens of racial justice, inclusion, and community engagement.
During her two-decade tenure as Executive Director and CEO of YWCA North Central Washington, she led initiatives to eliminate racism and empower marginalized communities. Jenny collaborated with experts to develop tailored racial justice programs, creating safe spaces for dialogue and community discussions on race and privilege.
Recognizing the importance of diverse representation, Jenny developed systems to strategically recruited board and staff members from marginalized backgrounds, fostering inclusivity within the organization. Jenny's dedication to inclusion extended beyond racial justice. She developed comprehensive programs and support services to address the intersecting challenges of poverty, addiction, mental health, and legal issues faced by marginalized individuals. By forging partnerships with other organizations, she expanded access to critical resources and services, emphasizing trauma-informed care and cultural competence.
Currently, as JLP Solutions, Principal Consultant, Jenny utilizes her expertise to support nonprofits to develop strategic systems directing nonprofit organizations to thrive and achieve their individual mission, vision, and values. Jenny's exceptional leadership skills and track record in executive leadership make her an invaluable resource in developing systems for nonprofits in the areas of organizational development, board development, executive coaching and review, crisis management, strategic planning, and organizational management. More recently Jenny has expanded JLP Solutions to include a team of some awesome senior consultants, each with their individual unique expertise and experiences. Jenny enjoys working alongside her team of highly skilled and passionate professionals to find just the right fit for every nonprofit client.
Personally, Jenny enjoys the beautiful outdoors while camping, hiking, and boating with her husband, three grown children, and four adorable grandsons.
