Etta D. Jackson worked in the field of education for twenty-five years as teacher, guidance counselor and district administrator in both New York and Wisconsin.
Ms. Jackson holds a B.A. in Biology and two M.S. degrees: one in Psychoanalytic Counseling and Development and the other in Administrative Leadership and Supervision.
Her passion for wanting to make a difference led her to the founding of The Institute for Conscious Global Change ICGC), a 501(c)(3) non-for profit NGO organization in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in the United Nations. She now serves as the CEO of the Institute.
This New York based organization was founded in 2007 with the objective of providing a comprehensive response to: ‘Fundamentally Change the Way Humanity Lives In and Creates Its Environment’!
The city of San Raphael in the NORD Department of Haiti is their Proof of Concept. More information can be found here: www.consciousglobalchange.org
The focus of their work is to provide visual but tangible development solutions to support the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals and now the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
With the aid of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), GeoDesign and its related platforms, together with Computer Assisted and Drafting and Design (CADD) software technologies, ICGC is engaging governments and citizens to develop holistic and comprehensive development models for implementation of each country. ICGC believes this approach is essential for the eradication of extreme poverty and to ensure no one is left behind. ‘We can indeed ‘Put Equality on the Map!’
Ms. Jackson is also the author of four books:
- Understanding Your Choice
- Unveiling the Secrets of the Feminine Principle
- The Role of Consciousness in Governance
- E-book: The Idea That Is the United States of America
She is the mother of one daughter and is also a grandmother.
