Jean Audrey Green Dorsey, Information Technology Executive at Institute of Management Development, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in information technology.
Ms. Dorsey became involved in her profession by default. She received her four-year degree so that it would open up doors for her and get her to another level in life. She always had to work to take care of herself and had been financially viable since she was 16 years old. She had to be able to work and go to college and that was how she ended up at Long Island University. She started working in the travel industry while going to college and became one of the best travel agents of all time. She finished college in 1962 with a Bachelor of Arts and was taking some graduate coursework, all while trying to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. She would travel every weekend to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and shop and was having a great time. However, at the end of the month, she could not pay her rent and she felt that this was not what she wanted for herself. She made a list of the companies she wanted to work for such as General Motors, IBM, and Pan American. The first company she called was IBM and began working for them.
The highlight of Ms. Dorsey’s career was being asked to lead a science and technology group by the foundation of the People’s Republic of China in 1988. They spoke about the state of technology at various levels. Other highlights were the concept of the “Poor Doors” and working for IBM as the corporate reservation manager in 1966, where she began her professional career. Ms. Dorsey remained with IBM until 1972 when she became a marketing manager for the Office of Automation, where she held the position until 1980. In 1981, she became the deputy director of New York City Management Information Systems, staying with the company until 1985. The following year she was the computer system manager of Inter-agy Task Force. In 1986, Ms. Dorsey became the president of the Institute of Management Development, where she remained until her retirement in 2011. As a testament to her success, Ms. Dorsey received the WESTY Award for her work to save affordable housing in 2003. She is also listed in numerous editions of Who’s Who of Emerging Leaders in America, Who’s Who of American Women, Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in the Media and Communications, Who’s Who in the East, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in Finance and Industry.
