CHARLOTTE, NC (June 16, 2022) – We are proud to announce that the CBI Board of Directors has selected Janeen Bryant to be Community Building Initiative’s next Executive Director, beginning July 25th, 2022.
Janeen is a tireless advocate for issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. She knows Charlotte, knows CBI and understands our mission, vision and needs. After more than 20 years in our community, she brings to CBI a wealth of experience in nonprofit leadership, community engagement strategies and pragmatic partnership processes.
“I have taken part in CBI programming and worked with them in the past, so I am thrilled at the opportunity to now lead Community Building Initiative,” says Bryant. “CBI’s mission and values align perfectly with mine: A human-centered society in which we see all individuals as valuable and move closer to our goal of community equity. My intention is to both preserve the legacy of Community Building Initiative, and to guide it onward as CBI evolves to meet the ever-changing needs of Charlotte-Mecklenburg.”
