Jennifer Lang

First Vice-Chair SCORE North Cook and Lake Counties Chapter at SCORE Mentors

HR executive consistently focused on the business community while pursuing a successful career in public service. Early career experiences shaped entrepreneurial approaches to large organizational issues, resulting in a senior management/executive career, as well as leadership positions in major professional associations. Accomplishments include “people strategies” to consolidate regional functions, workforce planning to launch new programs from initial legislation to full implementation, and all aspects of addressing labor/employee relations issues and organizational development and training, from the executive level to workforce technical and soft skills. Specific skill sets include strategic planning and execution, the establishment of short- and long-term objectives, implementation strategies, and accountability measures. These experiences involved large (up to 8500 position workforce, 7000 membership of professional organization), small (often working at the local office or chapter level to adapt national programs to local needs) and multi-site (multiple states and locations within each state), shaping a full career of business experience equipped to manage any human resources function.
