Dr. Jennifer Camota Luebke
Chief Workforce Inclusion Officer
“As a parent of an adult son who has an intellectual disability, I am acutely aware that our world wasn’t built for people like him. Joining PRIDE Industries allows me to focus full-time on creating inclusive workplaces for people of all abilities and empowering people with disabilities in their employment journeys.”
A Thought Leader and Industry Innovator
As Chief Workforce Inclusion Officer, Jennifer leads the company’s workforce inclusion programming strategy and operations, using innovation and data to develop integrated, community-based employment pathways for people with disabilities. Additionally, she influences employment policies that impact people with disabilities by working with local, state, and national legislative offices, and community advocacy organizations.

Jennifer brings more than 25 years of corporate business, higher education, and nonprofit leadership to PRIDE Industries. She managed large accounting operations departments and ERP systems implementations for Fortune 500 companies like Gap, Inc., Electronic Arts, and Genentech. Jennifer served as Associate Dean and Professor of Leadership at the University of San Francisco and Hult International Business School and has run her own leadership coaching and change management consulting practice. Jennifer is the co-founder of Ability Revolution, Inc., a not-for-profit organization which produces film and media projects that influence the way society views people with disabilities. Jennifer’s board service guiding disability-related organizations includes Best Buddies, All Belong Center for Inclusive Education, and the State of the Art Conference on Inclusive Postsecondary Education.
