During an invaluable IVY Ideas Night, Jaclyn Johnson draws on her own personal journey as a blogger turned CEO to shed light on what it takes to pursue your dreams. The Founder of the Create & Cultivate Conference and one of the Wall Street Journal’s “Women of Note,” Johnson has become an expert on offering insights and providing solutions that enable and empower others to build the careers they want. Each year, her conference gathers the next generation of intellectually curious female creatives, entrepreneurs, and bosses to spark conversation around the topics they are passionate about.

Throughout the evening, Jaclyn describes how to make meaningful connections, cultivate authentic relationships, and stimulate creativity in order to transform a passion into a profession. This IVY Ideas Night was presented in partnership with Zola.

Jaclyn Johnson launched Create & Cultivate in 2012, which has since taken place in Dallas, New York, Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles. She has grown Create & Cultivate into a must-attend conference where hundreds of women gather to find themselves entertained, enlightened, and inspired by the mix of speakers and workshop hosts. The conference has been called “the ultimate conference for girl bosses everywhere.” With Jaclyn at the helm, Create & Cultivate has skyrocketed to success and has featured speakers like Jessica Alba, Chelsea Handler, Gloria Steinem, Kristen Bell, and more. With an engaged-sought after demographic, Create & Cultivate draws global brands like Amazon, Microsoft, and Marriott as sponsors. Jaclyn was also the subject of an LA Times piece on “How I Made It.”
