Women Entrepreneurship Week 2019

Jen Shap

Google Agency Business Lead | Google

Jen joined Google in 2004 and has spent her Google career in Sales and Agency Business Development, helping accelerate revenue from Google’s largest advertisers and agencies. While on the US Agency Team, she has led partnerships across agency holding companies and helped construct one of the first Display & Video Incentive Agency deals. Jen is a proud co-lead of Women@ Google NYC, the second largest chapter in the US and has contributed to Google’s diversity, inclusion and equity efforts through her work facilitating #IamRemarkable, Bias Busting for Teams and other leadership courses. She holds a BA in Theatre Arts from Cornell University and is a proud Brooklyn mom of 2 remarkable kids and wife to a remarkable husband.
#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond. One of the big hurdles women and underrepresented groups face when tackling the leadership gap is practicing self-promotion — or vocally expressing their achievements in a working environment. The benefits of self-promotion are vast — including taking control of how you’re perceived by others, and making them understand the unique contribution you can make.
