Ms. Thelma D. Jones: Model, Spirit of Volunteerism

In this article, her third contribution in a series that celebrates Black History Month, World Bank Group archivist Bertha F. Wilson highlights former Bank Group staff member Thelma D. Jones. Jones, who is still very active in her community, has a long history of commitment to volunteerism and passion for creating opportunities for others. Jones’ Bank Group career began in April 1972 when she was hired as a typist, and she retired in October 2005 as a Communications Associate. She held positions in many departments across the organization, including the Operations Evaluations Department; the United States Executive Director’s Office; Investment Department Director’s Office; Finance and Private Sector Development; External Affairs; and the World Bank Institute.
