Jean Castleberry

As a Consultant with the Kaleidoscope Group, Jean focuses on analyzing Equal Opportunity (EO) data to determine the underlying cause of complaints and offering recommendations to organizations to manage diversity in the workplace. She has an extensive background in leadership and EO.

Jean is a retired US Army Military Police veteran of 25 years who worked in various leadership roles, including as an equal opportunity advisor to multiple commands worldwide. As a Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute graduate, she worked as an Equal Opportunity Advisor in various commands. In this role, she provided training, oversaw investigations of equal rights violations, and provided policy guidance to senior management.

After retiring from the Army, she joined the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and worked as a federal investigator in Savannah, Georgia, and San Antonio, Texas. Working for EECO allowed her to utilize her leadership and knowledge to assist organizations in aligning diversity with their mission. She also developed presentations and training materials to educate colleagues and the community about federal laws and conflict resolution in the workplace.

Jean obtained her doctoral degree in psychology specializing in mediation and conflict resolution from the University of the Rockies in Denver, Colorado, a Master’s degree in computer information and resources management from Webster University, Missouri, and a Bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Hawaii Pacific University.

She is also Vice-President of The Castleberry Group, LLC. This consulting firm supports government and nonprofit partners in developing and implementing equal opportunity, equity, and diversity objectives and initiatives.
