With Jennifer a highly-sought-after speaker for technology conferences, it’s no wonder that she is a pillar to so many young women, seeking a career in the field of technology. In Feb 2022, TMC co-sponsored the American Association of University Women’s STEM Career Conference at Long Beach City College, featuring women with eminent careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. They presented workshops to middle-school girls to excite them about the possibilities of such careers and to encourage them to attend college.
Prior to that, in December 2021, Jennifer helped launch Source Day’s “Women in ERP” podcast by sharing her company’s expertise in installing, training and maintaining enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, known as TMC’s core business.
To ensure women remain motivated to join the technology field, in 2021 and 2022, TMC sponsored the Women in Technology reception at the Microsoft User Group’s Annual Summit, where she was one of four women, recognized as leaders in the technology industry. TMC also offered two, needs-based annual scholarships for female students in STEM at Santa Monica City College and for a female student in Computer Sciences at Long Beach City College. This award is particularly important in that it is named after Jennifer’s late partner, Brenda Diener, who co-founded TMC.
In 2020, Jennifer played a key role in the American Association of University Women’s (AAUW) STEM Conference, speaking at their “Women Leadership in Technology” workshop. The AAUW is one of the most longstanding, respected organizations for women, dating back to the late 1800’s. In this enervating workshop, Jennifer encouraged middle-school students to pursue college degrees in the field of technology so that they could, too, could become future leaders. As a Vistage member, Jennifer also meets with other CEOs to share her dreams for the future of the technology industry.
