Before establishing Barbara Powell Consulting, I helped pioneer the Corporate Social Responsibility function of a US-based Fortune 500 company, evolving a traditional philanthropic and grass roots approach by developing strategy, creating programs and building alliances, which today are embedded in business operations worldwide.


I started my career as a human resources professional in retail banking followed by six years at the Federal Reserve Board before transferring my skills to the hotel industry with Marriott International where I transitioned to a career in corporate social responsibility. I am an honors graduate from the School of Business and Economics at Towson University.

My strengths and interests are in building programs, partnerships and relationships with purpose.
