Jodi Nguyen (she/her) serves as a Program Coordinator for the Group Effort Initiative. Her north star for a career is to support diverse storytelling that makes people feel connected and represented, while creating positive change along the way. As a Southeast Asian woman, she is passionate about breaking down barriers and uplifting groups that have been historically excluded from the entertainment industry. That drive led her to join GEI as a participant in college and to various internships at DreamWorks Animation, WarnerMedia, and Discovery Inc.

Jodi graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a B.A. in Communication and a minor in Film, Television, and Digital Media. In her free time, she enjoys reading, creating Pinterest boards, and making very specific music playlists.
