Whitney Lester, Senior Director of Talent Development

Overview

Greetings, and thank you for visiting Campus757. I’m Whitney, the Sr. Director of Talent for the Hampton Roads Workforce Council. I’m pleased to say that Campus757 was the first true talent initiative launched in this new division of the Council. Prior to my tenure here, I was a longtime HRWC Board member while creating jobs for people with disabilities at VersAbility Resources in Hampton. The 757 has so many assets, both natural and people-driven, and we hope to be the conduit for college students and anyone else to soak them all in for many years to come.
