OMAHA, Neb. (May 20, 2020) – The Scoular Company has appointed Jennifer Deitloff as its first Chief Diversity Officer, reporting directly to Scoular CEO Paul Maass in that role.
Deitloff, who joined Scoular in 2017, will continue to serve as the company’s Senior Associate General Counsel as part of its Legal team, in addition to her new role. She has been instrumental in Scoular’s diversity and inclusion efforts to date, co-leading the formation of the company’s Diversity and Inclusion Council.
“Jennifer has an extensive background applying her passion for diversity and inclusion throughout her career, and her leadership in this new role will enable Scoular to continue to foster a diverse, inclusive, and collaborative workplace for our employees,” Maass said. “I look forward to this next step in Scoular’s diversity and inclusion journey.”
Deitloff was selected as a LeadDIVERSITY 2020 Advocate, a program created by Inclusive Communities in partnership with OPPD, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce and The Business Ethics Alliance. In that program, she works with a broad cross section of leaders in the Omaha metro area to create solutions to diversity and inclusion opportunities. She also partnered with the Nebraska College of Law on diversity and inclusion efforts for Nebraska lawyers, as well as participated in Diversity Lab’s Diversity in Law Hackathon, where her team successfully developed and pitched a technology-based solution to address unconscious bias.
“I credit Scoular’s leadership for recognizing the need to be intentional about diversity and inclusion, particularly in light of the disruption our workplaces are currently facing,” said Deitloff. “I look forward to helping this great company continue to move along on the journey to promote diversity and foster a culture of inclusion.”
Deitloff grew up in Mitchell, Nebraska. She earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2000 and graduated from UNL’s College of Law in 2006.
