Gabrielle Caverl-McNeal

Gabrielle recently joined New Moms to lead the Workforce Development Team. She brings diverse experience in career coaching, job development, and training roles to her position. Her team specializes in assisting youth to find and advance in jobs by eliminating barriers to employment, creating opportunities to succeed, and providing career, financial and executive skills coaching. Gabrielle recently led the effort to pilot a 16-week program that  blends classroom and paid on-the-job training at our social enterprise candle company, Bright Endeavors, so participants will have the opportunity to develop and strengthen their professional skills, and prepare for success in the Chicagoland workforce. Gabrielle has hosted and developed state-of-the-art trainings tackling topics about leadership, career readiness, women’s economic empowerment, and career advancement that have streamed throughout the Chicagoland, Great Lakes, and New England regions of the country. Gabrielle holds a Masters in Communication and Training from Governors State University. In her free time, you’ll find her rummaging through a swanky thrift shop, or browsing your neighborhood clearance rack. As of January 2019, Gabrielle is a fellow through the inaugural Chicagoland Workforce Leadership Academy launched by the Chicago Jobs Council and the Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program. Within this 24 Fellow cohort, Gabrielle will have the opportunity to work with leading practitioners from around the country, engage in leadership development activities, and use practical planning tools to develop effective workforce strategies to strengthen their local workforce system.

Favorite New Moms value: Grit is the tenacious ability to overcome despite setbacks and failures. It’s the self-starting engine that causes one to rise up and try again despite the odds, and that is what job training imparts through coaching, support, and resources that propel our young moms towards success and achieving their long-term goals.”
