We think we have the best job in the world… getting to uncover and share the countless compelling stories about dynamic women that we come across each and every day. Operating in this infinite vortex of tangible inspiration, there is no end to the passion behind our mission: to hold each other up, while encouraging women to realize their own potential and go after what they want.

But when an extraordinary WYSK, whose life’s work has become the advancement of women and girls, takes note of what we’re doing and includes us in her personal archive of  “WonderWomen” that’s a truly magical moment for us.

This woman we so admire is Jacki Zehner, a power broker and game changer by all definitions. The following list just scratches the surface of all she has achieved and accomplished, thus far…

  • Jacki ZehnerShe was the youngest woman and first female trader to be invited into the partnership of Goldman Sachs
  • In 2002, she became a Founding Partner of Circle Financial Group, a private wealth management operation consisting of a small group of women committed to effectively managing their families’ assets and philanthropic activities
  • She serves as Co-Chair of Women Moving Millions and as a board member of The Women’s Funding Network
  • President of the Jacquelyn and Gregory Zehner Foundation
  • Former board member of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, The National Council for Research on Women, The University of British Columbia and The Center for Work-Life Policy
  • She serves as an advisor for many other for-profit and non-profit organizations that are working to advance gender equality for women and girls

Of WYSK Jacki recently wrote on her blog, “There are so many wonderful women in this world, and sadly not all of them will have their stories told by the mass media. However, it is wonderful to know that websites like Women You Should Know are out there, telling these important stories and providing a community and support system that inspires women around the world.”

This is a truly wonderful endorsement for which we are so very grateful to Jacki. What a proud moment for us!
