EVP, Head of Multicultural Communication, Edelman
Jackeline Stewart is an award-winning senior communication strategist specializing in inclusive marketing. She has experience working with leaders at the highest levels of business, brands, and government to develop dynamic strategies that reach, engage, and activate diverse audiences to create change.
As the head of Edelman’s U.S. Multicultural Communication Practice, she is operationalizing the specialty team’s bold, culture-fueled approach to help clients and colleagues across the Edelman network effectively address issues surrounding equity, justice, and accessibility and remain culturally relevant to Black, Latinx, Asian Pacific Islander, Indigenous American and other emerging majority audiences. The team’s work is intersectional, engaging LGBTQIA+ communities, people with disabilities, and other historically underrepresented demographics.
Before joining Edelman, Jackeline founded and managed the civil rights and racial justice portfolio at Spitfire Strategies, helping clients like the Ford Foundation, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and UnidosUS achieve meaningful results. She served in the Obama Administration as Press Secretary at the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).
