Jennie is the UK Chapter Lead for Capital One’s gender BRG, empowHER, and brings a gender lens to the REACH ethnicity network. On joining Capital One 18 months ago, Jennie focused on increasing visibility and awareness within her leadership team, quickly getting appointed to lead empowHER’s UK chapter. In the midst of a global pandemic, Jennie joined forces with a newly formed parents network to drive increased awareness of the pressures of lockdown and the danger of the current situation setting gender conversations back years. As such, she has been driving focused policy change opportunities around increased working flexibility. With intersectionality in mind, Jennie has taken on the work stream of community engagement and role modeling within schools and charities which focus on social mobility. She also volunteers on the board of Women in Banking and Finance, establishing a regional presence to support women in the Midlands & North regions.
