Johnson, Moore Join Milwaukee Film Board 

Jasmine M. Johnson of ManpowerGroup, Heidi Moore of Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin bring business and community leadership to the nonprofit; Ken Krei approved as board chair-elect 


MILWAUKEE – Monday, June 29, 2020 – The Milwaukee Film board of directors has added two key business and community leaders to its ranks, as Jasmine M. Johnson of ManpowerGroup and Heidi Moore of Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin have been elected to the board, the nonprofit announced on Monday. 


“Jasmine and Heidi are both forward-thinking, community-focused leaders, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that they’ve volunteered to join our board,” said Patti Keating Kahn, board chair for Milwaukee Film. “Both of these incredible women already give so much back to Milwaukee, and it’s an honor to have their help in furthering our mission.” 


Johnson is the diversity programs director at ManpowerGroup and is responsible for leading ManpowerGroup’s best-in-class Supplier Diversity Initiative in North America, as well as implementing innovative diverse workforce solutions for their clients. She was most recently selected as a participant of the 2020 Young American Leaders Program through Harvard Business School and was recognized as one of the 2015 United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County Philanthropic Five. In 2018, Jasmine received the inaugural City of Milwaukee’s Vel R. Phillips Trailblazer Award, an award honoring social justice and civic accomplishment in the City of Milwaukee. Jasmine holds a Master of Science degree in Management from Cardinal Stritch University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from the University of Wisconsin- Parkside. 


Johnson is a founding member and leading advisor of Milwaukee Film’s Black Lens Council. 


Moore joined Froedtert Health in July 2014 as the director of emerging markets and inclusion. In this role, she partners closely with the marketing and communications, supply chain and community engagement departments to develop strategies to meet the network goal to touch 3 million lives and expand market share in the diverse communities served. Previously, Moore worked at Northwestern Mutual, where she was the senior diversity consultant responsible for developing and implementing diversity strategy for the over 300 sales leaders and more than 7,000 sales representatives in partnership with the corporate office leadership. Prior to Northwestern Mutual, she was the founding organizational development/diversity leader for the Kohler Company. Moore has a Bachelor of Arts degree and completed her master requirements at Columbia College in Chicago. 


Moore has been a key partner in developing Milwaukee Film’s Minority Health Film Festival, presented by Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin regional health network. The second festival will take place in September. 


The board elections followed a months-long process, during which both the candidates and the board fully explored the mutual benefits of their potential board service. For Milwaukee Film, both candidates’ expertise in equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives are vitally important to carrying out the nonprofit’s mission. 


During its June meeting, the Milwaukee Film board also approved Ken Krei to a position of chair-elect. Krei rejoined the Milwaukee Film board in December 2019 and is the currently semi-retired vice-chairman of TMI Holdings, Inc. Previously he was the EVP of global private banking at Bank of Montreal, chair of M&I wealth management and capital markets at M&I Corp. Krei’s previous community involvement included serving on the board at 88Nine Radio Milwaukee and serving as chair/president/board member at the Milwaukee Art Museum. 


“Our board is essential to helping our organization navigate this extremely challenging climate, and I am humbled and grateful for their leadership,” said Jonathan Jackson, CEO and artistic director for Milwaukee Film.
