"In the years I’ve known Jan, both as a friend and professional colleague, I have seen the commitment, dedication and passion she brings to everything she does. That is particularly true of her efforts on behalf of workplace gender equality. Jan has helped Boards and C-suites to move women forward in their organizations through programs she devised.
I am in awe of her ability to see a challenge and find creative solutions, particularly through Aspire Ascend, the consulting firm she founded. I don’t know anyone better at listening attentively, learning quickly, and supporting completely the clients who are smart enough to engage her services."
