Fostering Women’s Empowerment and Entrepreneurship, with Jennifer Iannolo

Renaissance woman and entrepreneur Jennifer Iannolo brings her insights to audiences from Harvard to Kathmandu. As a featured speaker for the U.S. State Department, she travels the globe fostering women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship, including a recent tour of Nepal. In 2015 Jennifer launched The Concordia Project™ to bring forth a global conversation of inclusive empowerment, as well as programs to guide young women through their key decision-making moments in life. She recently shared insights from the project at UN Headquarters during the Commission on the Status of Women.

A pioneer in digital content, Jennifer co-created Culinary Media Network® — the world’s first all-food podcast channel — in 2006. She’s been featured in media from television to Bloomberg Businessweek, to a New York Times bestseller, and the documentary Eat. Cook. Love.

While an undergraduate at NYU’s Stern School of Business, she built her second company and chaired a conference on social entrepreneurship (before it was an official major or buzzword). Today she collaborates with leaders of social impact, including the Centre for Social Innovation, the ONE Campaign, and various UN organizations. Jennifer lives in New York City, and can be found in the ether as @foodphilosophy.
