About Jenny Powers

She’s the one-woman force behind Running with Heels, but she’s quick to tell you that the women who participate are what make the invitation-only networking community a success.

A life-long New Yorker and a graduate of NYU, Jenny doesn’t believe in strangers only people she hasn’t met yet. She’s a connector and business owner who approaches all of life with her infectious attitude for fun and her talent for bringing people together.


In 2015, she created and launched her award-winning podcast BroadCast: Broads Building Businesses, featuring a select cast of todays most inspiring entrepreneurial thought leaders, tastemakers and trendsetters as they share their journey from start-up to exit strategy and everything in between.


Before Running With Heels the International Special Events Society voted her one of the Top 5 non-profit event planners in New York State. She has over two decades of fundraising experience and has raised tens of millions of dollars for worthy causes.


She met her husband at an event she produced and the rest is "Herstory". They are raising a sassy daughter who plans to be the President of the United States. She tells Jenny that her first mission will be moving the White House to Brooklyn.
