"Those who know Jenn will wholeheartedly agree she is more than deserving of such an acknowledgement. She is absolutely one of the 100 most influential women in Canada," said Brian Paes-Braga, chair of Thunderbird Entertainment. "Now we are thrilled the rest of the world is getting a chance to learn more about Jenn, and how her remarkable leadership and compassionate spirit are guiding the incredible growth taking place across Thunderbird!"
The initial candidates for inclusion were selected by WXN's Diversity Council. Past WXN Award Winners include Canadian bestselling author Margaret Atwood, astronaut Dr Roberta Bondar, and Venture Communications CEO Arlene Dickinson among others.
"We are celebrating 100 of Canada's highest achieving women in fields ranging from arts and entertainment to sports and science," said Women's Executive Network CEO Sherri Stevens.
"All 100 winners exemplify power not through their standing or abilities, but rather through how they inspire, champion and empower others – which is why it's very important to recognize and celebrate their great achievements," she said.
