JANE WALKER BY JOHNNIE WALKER

In Partnership with Jane Walker by Johnnie Walker

Johnnie Walker is an iconic whisky brand with a mission to promote the spirit of progress. Monumental Women is an organization dedicated to bringing greater representations of women to public spaces. When Johnnie Walker approached us to partner on the introduction of Jane Walker, we were excited to learn our missions aligned.

In challenging times like these, Jane Walker represents a step in the right direction. Jane Walker is a brand  icon celebrating the many achievements of women and those on the shared journey toward gender equality and equal representation. At a corporate level, Diageo stays true to its mission by supporting the Jane Walker initiative through action-oriented programming. Diageo also promotes gender equality in the company - women comprise 40% of Diageo’s  executive committee, nearly 40% of its Board, and nearly 50% of Johnnie Walker's expert blending team, who craft the fine whisky, are women.

 With the support of Jane Walker by Johnnie Walker, Monumental Women is thrilled to bring the first statue honoring real female figures that have impacted history  to NYC's Central Park in 2020 - a true sign of progress! We proudly say #MonumentalChangeIsComing.

Jane Walker by Johnnie Walker is the Striding Woman icon that celebrates the many achievements of women and the shared journey towards progress in gender equality.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Jane Walker by Johnnie Walker was proud to unveil the Signs of Progress exhibit at the New-York Historical Society in partnership with the Center for Women’s History.

The pop-up exhibit, which ran through the month of March, featured a collection of preserved signs from women’s marches across the country. The curated body of work commemorates the spirit of collective progress moving our country forward.

WITH EVERY STEP, WE ALL MOVE FORWARD

Johnnie Walker supports various organizations championing women’s causes, including Monumental Women, in recognition of women in history who fought for progress, and She Should Run, to celebrate the future of women who lead the way.

#MonumentalWomen is an effort launched by the Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Statue Fund to support their mission to create a monument in NYC’s Central Park that pays tribute to suffrage leaders Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony and the Woman Suffrage Movement.

 

She Should Run encourages women of all political leanings, ethnicities, and backgrounds to explore political leadership opportunities with the belief that our democracy will benefit from the varied perspectives and experiences that women bring to leadership.
