As we celebrate Black History Month, we take this opportunity to recognize and showcase the exceptional talent within the Jabian team! Our first spotlight introduces Marcus Vassell, a senior manager in our Atlanta office and a seasoned change management leader.

Q: What was/is your favorite sci-fi movie or tv show?

A: My favorite sci-fi tv-show is Foundation. It is on Apple TV and it’s simply amazing. I’ve watched it about three times and now I’m watching it with my mother-in-law.

Q: What has been your experience with being black in corporate America? Good or bad? How have you handled that?

A: My experience with being Black in corporate America is constantly going through the mental gymnastics. It helps when allies of Black people truly understand our experience and be change agents in their non-Black relationships they have with others.
