Marlene Lieberman is the Director of Employer Programs for Creative Spirit, which is a non-profit devoted to creating integrated employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Prior to joining Creative Spirit, Marlene spent 40+ years working for global financial institutions including Citi,JP Morgan and BNP Paribas. She spent most of her career as a senior product manager in cash management services. During her tenure at BNP Paribas she became the co-chair of the bank's Ability Employee Resource Group. One of the primary activities of the group was an annual Mentoring and Networking Day bringing NYC-based college students with disabilities into the bank to expand their career opportunities.

Marlene has been engaged in the issues of people with disabilities for over twenty years when her then three year old son was diagnosed with a language development disorder and identified as being on the autism spectrum. Her son now has a Masters in Computer Engineering so she is familiar with the potential of people with disabilities.
