Concordia Project founder Jennifer Iannolo is an engaging, animated speaker who has inspired young women from undergraduates at Harvard University to activists at the United Nations. A featured speaker for the U.S. Department of State on women’s entrepreneurship and empowerment, Jennifer brings a new viewpoint to the concept of empowerment that is not only universal, but also ground-breaking in its approach. She recently shared insights from her Nepal tour at the 61st UN Commission on the Status of Women.
Her keynotes focus on crafting a new lens through which to see leadership, empowerment, and entrepreneurship. Her workshop on “How to Have It All” continues to fill rooms on campuses around the country. The most recent, for the Purdue Women in Business organization, was sponsored by Ford Motor Company. As a lifelong entrepreneur and pioneer in digital media (she co-created the world’s first food podcast channel), Jennifer has been through just about every gauntlet an entrepreneur can face.
Jennifer constantly strives to reframe the context about seemingly ordinary subject matter to empower us and put us in charge of the way our lives go — sometimes despite huge obstacles. She makes a strong emotional and thought-provoking connection with her audience, taking them on a journey through laughter, sometimes tears, and everything in between.
