Coltrane Stansbury currently serves as Vice President- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at MacMillan Learning.  In this role, Coltrane leads MacMillan’s diversity and inclusion programs and strategy as well as amplifies the work the company is doing in support of their people, programs, and culture.  Making impactful change is part of Coltrane’s DNA. He is an experienced DEI leader with an extensive background in business, policy, and community outreach. He comes most recently from Becton Dickinson & Co, PSEG, and Johnson & Johnson, where he was responsible for building DEI programs from the ground up.  

Prior to his corporate DEI work, Coltrane worked on equal employment opportunity and workforce development issues- helping to empower families, residents, and businesses in some of the most distressed communities nationally. That work has included serving as a Senior Policy Advisor to then Mayor Cory Booker (now U.S. Senator) in the City of Newark, NJ and as a Presidential Management Fellow in the federal service. 

Coltrane is very active in his community, serving on the boards of the Civic League of Greater New Brunswick and the United Way for Greater Newark.  He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hampton University and a Master of Public Policy degree from Rutgers University's Bloustein School, where he was an Eagleton Fellow.  He also holds an Executive Leadership Certificate from Cornell University and a Certificate in Public Performance Management from Rutgers University.

About AllVoices

In today's workforce, people often don't feel empowered to speak up and voice their opinions about workplace issues, including harassment, bias, and other culture issues. This prevents company leadership from making necessary changes, and prevents people from feeling fulfilled, recognized, and included at work. At AllVoices, we want to change that by providing a completely safe, anonymous way for people to report issues directly to company leaders. This allows company leadership real transparency into what’s happening in their companies—and the motivation to address issues quickly. Our goal is to help create safer, more inclusive companies.
