My name is Jinan Ziade. Currently a Doctoral student, ABD, at University of Phoenix working on my doctorate of management in Organizational Leadership, specializing in Information System Technology. I worked for AT&T and had 14 years of experience in the Advertising and Publishing industry. During that time, I held many positions including senior graphic design, team leader, and project coordinator. Drawing on the many years of experiences and the varied background in the design and layout techniques I helped the company made decisions about allocating resources by providing the best foundation to analyze the workflow of knowledge and find solutions to improve employees’ productivities and performance.
I have also lead the United Way/AT&T campaign for the five consecutive years (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012). In this role, I was responsible for developing new innovative ideas to raise funds and gained excellent supervisory and leadership skills. It was a great experience seeing all the work being done to ensure the United Way was spending the dollars collected wisely. Contributing time and effort was a great investment in the community.
I enjoy traveling around the world with my son and my husband to broaden our awareness of other cultures, pick up a language or two, and meet interesting people. We have had some wonderful travels and enjoyed learning new cultures and discovered new excitements.
