During her 18 months at the CBCF, Veasey collaborated with her Board and representatives of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to amplify and ultimately expand the Foundation’s mission advancing the Black community on a global scale. Veasey led change-management initiatives, historic fundraising campaigns, and built a synergized culture amongst the industry’s top leaders that drove landmark wins in racial reckoning.
Throughout her c areer, Veasey has counseled executives at Fortune 500 companies and elected officials, grown her Fort Worth-based public affairs agency, and then joined the historic nonprofit as their CEO and President. It was during her tenure at CBCF that Veasey became more aware of the need for Corporate America to make a real impact for the betterment of our society, marginalized communities, and people of color. OCG+ is the solution to this roadblock and is dedicated to helping brands navigate HOW to launch a long-term social impact strategy that truly connects and addresses systemic problems marginalized communities face daily.
OCG+ will help companies:
- Create Social Impact Strategies
- Build Strategic Partnerships
- Foster Media and Issue Management
- Elevate Public Awareness Campaigns
“During my time at CBCF, I saw first-hand the importance of political leaders, corporate pioneers and community changemakers working together to strengthen marginalized communities,” Veasey said. “This collection of experiences inspired me to renew my passion in DEI. OCG+ will focus on the needs of the times. I see a future where corporations and organizations can collaborate to create sustainable public-private partnerships that have a real impact in our communities, and I believe the work we do at OCG+ can guide them to that place.”
