Kenny Foster began his career interning at Youth Radio in downtown Oakland where he delved into the worlds of journalism and digital media. He also hosted a radio show and served as a music production peer teacher. His passion for social justice is what led him to become a Strategist and Communications Consultant with Wonder: Strategies for Good and the MDC Consulting Network. While there he implemented digital strategy for the “A Good Hire” campaign using LinkedIn to reach HR directors with selected content to shift negative sentiments around hiring people with records in Alameda County. The goal of the clients, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and the National Employment Law Center, was to get Alameda County businesses to hire more people with convictions or arrests on their records.
Kenny led the research efforts for multiple clients and also developed and led digital media strategy including social media strategy, website management, and e-newsletter direction. He earned his B.A of Communications from San Francisco State University.
