Jayke Hamill



Senior Faculty

Center for Creative Leadership



For more than a decade, I have been privileged to support leaders in their own journeys to create meaningful change in their communities, organizations, and beyond. I began this work as a volunteer and community organizer, first learning how to advocate for myself and my family: as a first[1]generation/low income college student from Appalachia, as a queer-identified southerner, as a family member of people with disabilities – but also as a person with many privileges and opportunities that allowed me to be heard when I chose to speak up. Through my work as a facilitator, experiential educator, coach, advocate, and aspiring accomplice, my purpose is to work with other leaders to leverage their identities, values, and lived-experiences in pursuit of making the impact they want to have in the world.


Current Role

I currently serve as a senior faculty member on CCL’s Societal Impact team, designing and facilitating customized leadership development programs in collaboration with nonprofits/NGOs, philanthropic foundations, education systems, and other social sector organizations. I have been privileged to support many initiatives that align with my own values, including programs that leverage leadership development in pursuit of: advancing racial equity, building collective advocacy of people with developmental disabilities, generating stronger networks within LGBTQ+ communities, fostering career readiness with rural and first-generation college students, and developing inclusive training resources to support youth with learning differences such as ADHD and dyslexia.

Since 2018, I have been an inaugrual team member of CCL’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion training practice, and was also responsible for creating an organization-wide initiative on accessibility and WCAG/508 Compliance. In 2020 I led an effort to create CCL’s first LGBTQ+ Global Employee Resource Group, where I am currently a Co-Chair.

Educational Background

I hold an M.A. in Peace & Conflict Studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and an undergraduate degree in Human Development & Learning from East Tennessee State University. My academic studies are rooted in social justice leadership, community partnerships, and organizational/cultural conflict.

I am certified to debrief on an array of personality, behavioral, and feedback assessments, such as as FIRO-B, WorkPlace Big Five, Change Style Indicator, Influence Style Indicator, Conflict Dynamics Profile, Power + Systems’ Organization Workshop, and CCL’s Benchmarks 360. I am also certified by 4MAT 4BUSINESS® to design inclusive training experiences for a diverse range of learning preferences, and have been working toward an executive coaching certification since 2018.
