Our Newest Leader on Why She Chose Canvas

Hi, I'm Jenna. 

I’m thrilled to be joining Canvas as Vice President of Customer Success. I deeply believe talent is distributed equally, but opportunity is not. The throughline in my career has been expanding access and driving equity for everyone pursuing their education and building their career, regardless of the zipcode they were born into. I’m joining Canvas from Handshake, where I led cross-functional strategy and new market development. Prior to Handshake, I led the Customer Success team at RaiseMe.

Jumping on this rocket ship was such an easy decision. Here are just a few of the reasons why.

Mission: Let’s make recruiting fair for all.

Opportunity: A digital-first recruitment tool built to ensure historically underrepresented talent shines? Founded by and for recruiters? The world needs Canvas now, more than ever. Our incredible partners validate this daily.

Leadership: I'm thrilled to be joining the most diverse leadership team I've ever sat on, across multiple metrics. Truly diverse teams are best positioned to create the most impactful solutions as they authentically understand the perspectives of those they serve. Canvas walks the walk, and I'm honored to be a part of it. Keep an eye out for more leadership announcements over the coming weeks that underscore our deep commitment to this value.

Team: The Canvas team hails from Facebook, LinkedIn, AirBnB, Handshake, Twitch, and so many more exceptional companies. We’re recruiters, technologists, product folks, designers, polymaths, and thought-leaders. Canvas's smarts, teamwork, thoughtfulness, and grit will drive our success.

Let’s build.

BTW, here's what I shared with the team before I joined so they could learn a little more about me: 

Stop setting diversity goals.
Start meeting them.
