Hattie McCarter

Hattie B. McCarter (she/her) is a Certified DEI Professional, with 14+ years of experience in diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging; 20 years of public speaking; and 7+ years in Human Resources/Recruitment. Hattie is from Enterprise, Alabama, a small town that is surrounded by farmland, good soul food, and strong family values. In 2011, she obtained her master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Alabama State University, Montgomery, AL. Hattie, and her family moved to Pennsylvania (PA) with uncertainty, hopes and determination in making a new home, new career, and different perspective on life.
Although her passion for DEI blossomed before moving to PA, Hattie started her career at the Department of Labor & Industry’s: Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) where she worked for 10 years as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor while promoted to a Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Specialist. As the VR Specialist (Human Resource, Diversity and Communication), she redeveloped and led the agency’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Program as well as their recruitment program for hiring diverse and qualified master’s level students for OVR’s employment and internship opportunities. In 2022, Hattie transitioned to the Department of General Services: Bureau of Diversity, Inclusion and Small Business Opportunities to oversee and implement their Equity Management Program as the Equity Management Program Coordinator. Hattie was charged with promoting and fostering a workforce that was diverse and inclusive through equity training(s), steering committees, employee resource groups (ERGs), assessments and metrics.
As Hattie’s career and expertise began to soar in the field of DEIB, she decided to launch her consulting business, McCarter’s Equitable and Distinctive (MEND) Solutions to be consistent, impactful, and purposeful in making sure that all individuals have the heart-capacity in walking in this journey of DEIB.

“As I started to embark and expand my career in DEIB, I realized that for me to be a voice and shed light on the lived experience of marginalized communities, I knew that it started with me by decentering myself and developing a selfless lens that always leads in love.”
