Throughout March, in honor of International Women's Day (March 8), we are celebrating some of the remarkable women at JAS. Today, we are honored to highlight Jennifer Jinadu-Wright, Vice President, Global Marketing.

What advice would you give your younger self?

I would tell my younger self to believe in myself and not fear failure. To not let stereotypes or other people’s perceptions or expectations define me. Lastly, I would tell myself not to worry, that everything will be ok, and work out exactly how it is supposed to.  

How have female mentors/role models influenced your career?

I have been extremely fortunate to work with some amazing women throughout my career, and I have learned valuable lessons from each of them. One of my first bosses, Lynn Brantley, was tiny in stature and kind in nature and changed my image of what a successful executive needed to be. She demonstrated an unwavering belief in my potential even when I doubted myself.

At JAS, there is a strong network of extraordinary women. From my first day, I was enveloped by them, and it feels good to know that I can count on them for their support. Other influences are Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” book. Her “sit at the table” was a powerful message, and I wished I had read her book sooner. I also admire Bozoma “Boz” Saint John and am inspired by her journey and ability to always be her authentic self.  

What achievements are you most proud of while working at JAS?

I started at JAS last year and was hired into the newly created VP of Global Marketing role. I am very proud to sit in this key position as a black woman in a male-dominated industry and be part of a company that genuinely believes in its people.  

How do you embrace #EmbraceEquality?

At JAS, our culture is about our people, hence our tagline, “People make the difference.” So internally, I strive to ensure my team members feel heard and understood and provide ongoing opportunities for them to learn, explore, grow, and lead. For our customers, the goal is to create marketing campaigns that resonate with our audiences from all backgrounds so that they also feel seen and understood and can connect with our brand in a meaningful way.  

In your opinion, why is it important that more women pursue careers in the industry in the future?

The industry is growing, and the future is looking very bright. A Harvard Business Review Report predicted growth of over 56,000 jobs in the next decade. There are tremendous opportunities as this industry continues to build diverse workforces to support increasing technological advancements and digital-driven supply chain solutions.
