John Kenney

Coordinator, Employment Advocacy
Ottawa, Ontario

I’m John Kenney and a neurodivergent person who stutters. I’m also a Senior Policy Advisor in the federal public service living and working in Ottawa, although my heart is in Nova Scotia, where I grew up. I’m passionate about diversity and inclusion in the workplace. As the CSA’s Employment Advocacy Coordinator and 50 Million Voices representative, I want to help create a world where everyone who stutters can bring their whole selves to work, enjoy fulfilling employment, and where more organisations across all sectors benefit from the talents and strengths of people who stutter. I enjoy the outdoors and camping, road trips and travel, pack walks with my dog, Morris, and partner, Charmaine, and listening to as much music as humanly possible.
