She is also driving an initiative to bring male ambassadors on board by hosting International Men’s Day to further the agenda of inclusivity and showcase the male ambassadors we have to leverage the support of others. Jennie is also an advisory board member to the Aston University Enactus team, and mentors with the Prince’s Trust where she proactively supports the pipeline development and challenge of social mobility into Financial Services.
