Jeffrey M. Siminoff
SVP of Workplace Dignity

Jeffrey and his team are focused on bridging Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights’ legacy human rights work and the values that underlie it to the workplace through a focus on workplace dignity. He is based in San Francisco, California. 

Jeffrey has deep experience as an inclusion and diversity, workplace culture and social impact leader and consultant, and as a former employment lawyer.  He has built out and expanded the Inclusion & Diversity functions at top Silicon Valley companies like Twitter and Apple, where he was recognized as one of "Ten Men Making Waves for Women in Tech". In these industry-leading positions, Jeffrey and his team were focused on prioritizing inclusion in key people processes, creating more intentionality and engagement around what an inclusive culture should be, establishing relationships across the tech industry and organizations that work with it, and thinking differently about how these companies showed up outside of the workplace, including as a business and community engagement matter. 

Before moving to the Bay Area for Apple, he led the Global Diversity & Inclusion function at Morgan Stanley. Jeffrey was asked to take on that role after leading the Pride (LGBTQ) Employee Resource Group, a transformative experience for him. In addition to leading Pride, Jeffrey practiced employment law and litigation for Morgan Stanley in NYC and London, and led the Legal Division’s Diversity Committee. He began his career in private law firm practice.    

Jeffrey is a Duke University grad (where he focused on Public Policy Studies) and received his law degree from Emory University. He is a pretty intense foodie, and fan of travel and fitness.
