Jean Kayano

Executive Director

Jean Kayano, is the Associate Director of the Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice (CCAEJ).   After 30 years of extensive experience in the nonprofit world to help with organizational change and management work – she has finally discovered at CCAEJ her passion for social and environmental justice work.  Although her skill set revolves around organizational administration; human resource; and fiscal oversight – her greatest joy revolves around leadership building – working alongside community residents and staff who fight for the right to live in a healthy, toxic-free and sustainable environment.  Jean’s work at CCAEJ also includes managing all the various program elements.  She enjoys working within team and feels grateful to engage with others in this life-changing work!
