Jennifer Saunders

Associate Director, Melbourne
Specialisms:
I have had the privilege of working with design and manufacturing multinationals for more than 15 years to develop and optimise their business processes both across functional areas and within departments. I also had the privilege of working across continents with clients around benchmarking CSR data, DJSI and GRI based sustainability reporting.

Background:
Before joining Corporate Citizenship, I worked in Seattle, Washington as a business development and process improvement consultant at CSRHub. With training as a chemical engineer and a postgraduate diploma in management, I have worked and consulted across a range of industries including manufacturing, FMCG, technology and healthcare. I’ve also held a number of corporate roles throughout my career working in logistics, engineering design, supply chain management, manufacturing, and sustainability strategy, policy and reporting.

Client and Project Experience:
I have established strong working relationships with a number of leading organisations around the world including Bunnings, Suncorp, National Australia Bank, Owens Illinois, The Woodbridge Group, General Motors, Ford, Toyota and University of Washington – Milgard School of Business. I continue to research various aspects of corporate social responsibility and remain committed to sharing those results with my fellow CSR professionals. I also have extensive project management experience in process optimisation, system implementation and maintenance in both quality and environmental management and GRI reporting and stakeholder management.

Person I most admire:
It’s difficult to pinpoint one person, however, I’m particularly inspired by all the dedicated professionals working in not-for-profit early childhood care and education. Their guidance and quest for freedom of spirit allows for the minds and bodies of our youngest humans to develop into wonderful community-minded people.
