Black Sheep Team

Justin Bell


Justin is a seasoned leader in the diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging space with extensive experience in talent acquisition, learning & development, and event management, not only as a facilitator, but also a content creator and subject matter expert.

His energy and passion for building engagement in the workplace rests on the bedrock of 20+ years of experience supporting global firms ranging in size from 5 to 350,000 employees, such as Capgemini, Freddie Mac, Experis (a part of ManpowerGroup Global) and DLA Piper.

Justin’s life beyond the workplace is even more exciting, thanks to his incredible family, which includes his wife and two young children, and an active social life in the greater Chicagoland area. He holds the honor of being a board member for Minds Matter Chicago, an organization supporting the journey of underrepresented high school students working to attend four-year colleges and universities.

Of particular note on Justin’s long list of talents, is his skill as a writer. He composes reviews and commentary about the tabletop hobby space for the site Meeple Mountain. In addition to writing dozens of reviews each year for Yelp, he holds the distinction of being a member of Yelp’s Elite Squad for the past 11 years as a featured reviewer.

When Justin is not busy lending his many skills to enhance the lives of those around him, he enjoys playing games, is an ardent traveler, and an avid movie buff, often seeing as many as 100 movies in a year.
