Jacquelyn Claiborne Webb, MPA
Board Chair and Executive Director

After spending nearly 15 years managing mutli-million dollar retail businesses, consulting and other operational roles, founder Jacquelyn Webb realized that her passions centered around people development, community improvement, education, and advocacy for others.  Jacquelyn has worked as a policy analyst and educator and has witnessed first-hand the themes that drive advocacy across sectors.

As a Flint native, Jacquelyn has a strong sense of commitment to serving disadvantaged populations.  The Michigan Center for Civic Engagement and Advocacy was birthed from a need to empower everyday people to have the tools, awareness and supports needed to be active community members. She believes that,  “when working together we can achieve more, and that with diversity of thought we can accelerate progress and innovate."
