Join us on Tuesday, January 23 to hear from three Jessica Vollman Foundation (JVF) grantees, Manasvi Perisetty, Lauren Fleming, and Sophie Sanchez during a JVF-sponsored FoundHER Panel. You’ll learn about how their own personal experiences influenced each FoundHER to launch a business and how this ties back to the JVF’s mission.
About the Jessica Vollman Foundation:
Jessica Vollman’s family started the Jessica Vollman Foundation (JVF) to honor her legacy after her passing in 2020.
As a UT alumna and passionate leader for female entrepreneurs, Jess’ personal mission led to JVF’s: promoting career advancement for women globally through access to education, closing the skills gap, and job flexibility.
Honoring the legacy of Jessica, JVF has partnered with KS WELI to offer grants and sponsorship opportunities to leaders that are a part of KS WELI’s FoundHER Program.
Throughout the month of January, we celebrate Jess January as our own tribute to Jessica Vollman.
