Jimerson, the founder/executive director of Minority Inclusion Project in Manchester, Connecticut, has worked for over 15 years in public service across Connecticut. Throughout his career, he has given invited presentations on nonprofit diversity, inclusion, equity, and leadership for regional and national workshops.
