As a Diversity & Inclusion Pinnacle Award Finalist, Jan Johnson, ARRAY Senior Program Manager, spoke with WashingtonExec on the turning points in her career, shaping the next generation of leaders and her future focus areas.
“I am very proud to model hard work based on being ethical, contributing to the mission and making use of all my interests. I am proud to demonstrate to my three young children and others that it can be done, and it is possible. I believe modeling this balance encourages others to pursue a career that may otherwise be very intimidating or unachievable.
In my career, I believe it is important to attract and encourage others as the future generation of innovators. It is equally important to model to woman, mothers, minorities, and those from other underrepresented groups that this is possible! I am proud that my career has given me the platform and opportunity to be a positive example,” Johnson shared in the interview.
