Jane Johnson

Jane is the founder of Careering into Motherhood. She spent 20 years in the City advising senior leaders on marketing & communications strategy, she was the first person to negotiate her Global Director role as a job-share, for one of the world’s largest banks where she experienced first-hand how a parental leave experience can make or break women’s careers. The idea for Careering into Motherhood was born out of frustration after seeing how hard it is for women to continue their careers after children. She leads the community of over 20,000 women, and a cohort of over 50 Professional Coaches, she consults and advises our corporate partners, and is the host of the Careering into Motherhood award-winning podcast.
