After being born into homelessness and driven by the hardships endured in her formative years, Jolene is inspired to work with values-driven organizations and clients she can positively impact.
Jolene founded her branding and creative agency, The Working Assembly in 2017. Since then, she's been committed to working with female founders, empowering minority entrepreneurs and bridging the gender gap in tech and creativity. Currently, clients of The Working Assembly include fast growth startups including Rent the Runway, Compass, Zola, Lyft and Klarna, cultural institutions like NYC Tourism and NYC Pride and established brands like Evian and MassMutual. Since the agency's inception, the team has grown to 35+ and the company has tripled revenue every year.
