Hampton University alumnus Leading Diversity Efforts for Clinton Campaign

Hampton University alumnus Bernard Coleman is working for diversity, and he’s working to achieve those goals in the presidential campaign for Hillary Clinton.

Coleman is the Chief Diversity & Human Resources Officer for “Hillary for America” since April, 2015 and is responsible for overseeing diversity and inclusion throughout the campaign.

“Diversity is really important, the country is demographically changing… people should embrace that change to leverage and empower others in a sense that we can keep America great,” said Coleman.

Coleman graduated from Hampton University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. He has held senior level roles at the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign and the Society for Human Resource Management.

While attending the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia from July 25 – 28, Coleman will be speaking on numerous panels in hopes to bring awareness to people of color about the opportunities for employment within the Hillary for America campaign. He has ambitions to bring his quest for diversity all the way to the White House.

Join us in congratulating this local graduate on his success, and wishing him luck during the upcoming campaign!
