International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, political and cultural achievements of women. This year’s global theme is #BreakTheBias. As a company that’s 94% women, J.Jill breaks the bias by creating an environment where women are inspired, empowered, impactful and, specifically, where women are leaders.

WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP

At J.Jill, we #BreakTheBias every day with a leadership team of incredible women who drive the business and brand. At the helm is our CEO, Claire. Shelley is our SVP Chief Merchandising Officer, Kyle is our SVP Chief Human Resources Officer, Kara is our SVP of Marketing & Customer Experience and Robin is our VP of Information Services. These bold, resilient executives are an inspiration to the team that follows their lead.

To start our conversation around International Women’s Day at J.Jill, we asked our associates,

AN INCLUSIVE WORKFORCE

Wisdom comes with experience, and we’re always learning about ourselves—at every age! We asked our team,

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

Quotes: You are unstoppable, so do not let anyone dull your shine! Invest in yourself. Listening is a skill. Work hard. Don’t let the ways that other people feel about YOU change the way YOU feel about yourself. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Make more mistakes when you are young. Live in the moment. Save your money. Listen to your instincts. Always bet on yourself and trust your gut. Stay true to who you are. Be positive. Not all risks are reckless. Worry less. It all works out.
