After working in fashion design and marketing for 20 years, Jane Winchester Paradis left a corporate job with a dream to design beautiful jewelry with meaning. She set out to create something from scratch, something original that connected with women, and she wanted her kids to see it. She knows how to celebrate and embrace every moment of life – from motherhood, to divorce and remarriage. A Jane Win piece is a talisman for milestone moments and a reminder to focus on everything you want to achieve. Along the way, she has embraced the importance of collaborative and supportive relationships, especially as a female entrepreneur.

Join us for an interactive chat with Jane Winchester Paradis, founder of Jane Win Jewelry, LLC and the Scarpa Center’s fall 2023 Entrepreneur in Residence, centered around the five core values that are the building blocks of her successful company: 

  1. We make beautiful things that embody strength and positivity. We expect our designs to be passed from generation to generation with love. 
  2. We are not afraid to be ourselves. We are happy, have fun and celebrate a little irreverence. 
  3. We are humble. We embrace individuality. We treat everyone (customers, employees, and vendors) with respect. We take the time to do things right. 
  4. We run a modern, visionary business. We create and adapt innovative strategies to build a strong company that delivers a special experience to our consumers. We surpass expectations.
  5. We share. When the company succeeds, we share in our good fortune.

This conversation will include a Q&A session, followed by a networking reception. Please note that space is limited.
