Meet Jacki Zehner

Founder of ShePlace and SheMoney

Jacki Zehner describes herself as a financial feminist. The latest Global Gender Gap Report states that at the current rate of change, it will take over 135 years to reach gender parity, and for Jacki, that’s completely unacceptable. As the founder of ShePlace and SheMoney, her plan is to bring all of her decades of experience championing for the advancement of women and girls under these new umbrellas. Jacki learned quite a lot about finance while working at Goldman Sachs where, at the age of 32, she became the youngest woman and first female trader to make partner. After leaving Goldman in 2002, Jacki spent almost a decade absorbing as much as she could about the wealth management industry, before diving into philanthropy full force, serving on many women focused non-profit boards, giving through her family foundation, and co-founding a global philanthropic network called Women Moving Millions, through which members have collectively given over one billion dollars with a gender lens. Jacki is an active investor and champion of gender-lens investing more broadly. She began writing about women and money in 2009 on her personal blog and other platforms and now primarily publishes regular content on LinkedIn.
