Central Texas Leadership Series - Jocelyn Williams

For KWBU’s Central Texas Leadership Series this week, KWBU’s Rachel Velasco leads a conversation with Jocelyn Williams, the Center of Business Excellence coordinator for the Centex African American Chamber of Commerce.

Williams discusses her background as a professional musician turned educator, her commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work, and her advocacy for small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Waco community and beyond. Williams also serves on the boards of the McLennan Community Investment Fund and the Waco Civic Theater.

A love for people and the greater Waco community has always been the heart of Rachel’s work. A 2005 UT Austin graduate with a degree in English, Rachel began her career as a classroom English teacher. Through various professional opportunities in the education field, health and wellness industry, and the private business sector, she cultivated a love for building strong communities through service. She joined KWBU in August of 2023. She is also the Saturday Market Manager for the Waco Downtown Farmers Market. She has four nearly-grown children and loves tending her herbs and roses and growing things.
