Her career in sustainable business has spanned over 17 years, ranging from the design of strategic collaborations to the implementation of programs across multiple sectors and businesses in the support, promotion and empowerment of a sustainable future. While working as a consultant to some of the world’s largest brands, Jean began to see a significant need for the unique views and attributes that women can bring to conversations, businesses and economies in a sustainable future. Fueled by her creativity, intuition and passion, Jean established The SmartGirls' Way and began creating the content—including a book uniquely focused on women’s entrepreneurial strengths—to help rapidly scale the women’s entrepreneurial movement that will form the critical base for the next economy.
