Intersectionality is a key focus that Jennie has been driving into conversations since joining Capital One in late 2018. Recognizing that a focus on ethnicity alone will not be enough to address the changes that are required, Jennie has been providing a social mobility lens to the organization’s initiatives. The ‘Privilege Walk’ exercises she organized raised awareness of the different levels of privilege existing within the firm’s own teams, whilst the community engagement workstreams aimed to role model within schools and charities in order to tackle challenges to social mobility. Along with launching a reciprocal mentoring scheme for Senior Leaders to learn from others, Jennie also established open conversations on the increase in anti-Asian racism to raise awareness and ensuring that the mental health implications were considered as part of return-to-office initiatives. As a Director on the Board of Women in Banking & Finance, Jennie brings ethnicity into focus within the gender conversation.
