Christine Mari Hori, Marketing Manager
"Jenn's presentation was compelling and an eye-opener for our summit audience. Gender equity is an important theme for Japan but its penetration into the working force will still take time. With astonishing data and a great presentation style, we are delighted that Jenn was able to join us."
VP Digital Strategy
"I was one of 100 male leaders at the iMedia Brand Summit 2018 who had the good fortune of attending a Wet Cement presentation on Gender Equity. What I loved about it was that she shared research that helped highlight some of the barriers that hold women back, and how we as managers can address sensitive topics like communication styles or how to build confidence."
VP Digital Marketing
"It’s hard to say whether Jenn’s talk affected me more as a manager, or as the father of a young girl. In either case, I will be more keenly aware of the opportunities and challenges women face in the workplace"
