Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Jan 21, 2017 - Jennifer S. Wilkov, the founder of the annual Speak Up Women Conference (www.SpeakUpWomen.com) who was wrongfully convicted of a white collar crime in the New York State criminal court system, will be marching today in the Women’s March on Washington in Washington, D.C. Ms. Wilkov will be posting and providing insights and reports from the march through her Facebook Live broadcasts and posts at https://www.facebook.com/speakupwomen/.
Ms. Wilkov will be marching with the Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN), a non-partisan organization of active and veteran military women who are committed to defending and strengthening the rights and opportunities available to all women who have served in the military, past, present and future. SWAN is participating in the march to express universal support for gender equality, not only in the military but also throughout American society. Over the past decade, significant strides have been made to secure rights and opportunities for military women. SWAN is committed to preserving and protecting these rights in 2017, and in keeping the momentum moving forward, as is Ms. Wilkov.
Ms. Wilkov will talk about her experience at the Women’s March on Washington as part of her keynote address at the Speak Up Women Conference event on March 3, 2017. Ms. Wilkov will share how she continues to support others with the important skills needed to build better relationships, personally and professionally, and to speak up about the issues they care about with loved ones, in the workplace, and in their lives.
Ms. Wilkov has continued to help change and shape the lives of others, not just through the philanthropic efforts of this experience, but also through her work as the Philanthropy Coordinator of the Manhattan BNI franchise and as an active board member, speaker and lobbyist for the It Could Happen to You organization that fights for justice reform in New York State.
Ms. Wilkov has previously addressed her controversial case in her award-winning feature article that appeared in the April 2009 issue of Marie Claire (http://www.marieclaire.com/politics/news/a2745/jennifer-w…) and during her March 2009 interview on CNBC Squawk Box (https://youtu.be/eAoefEguYPg). She has also spoken publicly about it during her TEDx Talk at the TEDxBroadStreetNY event in June 2011 (http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/TEDxBroadStreetNY-Jennifer…). Three years after she was falsely accused and incarcerated in Rikers Island, F.I.N.R.A., the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, denied all claims in their entirety against Ms. Wilkov, proving her innocence and pointing to the failures and negligence of her firm’s compliance supervision, which they concealed from the criminal prosecution process years earlier.
“I’m delighted to have the unique opportunity to share this important day with all women here in the United States and around the world as well as with the attendees of the Speak Up Women Conference in March,” says Jennifer S. Wilkov. “Oftentimes, we are uncertain about what we are going to do when we are hit with what appears to be a challenging or even devastating situation; moreover, we are not confident about how we are going to handle it. What most people fear is to be judged, by their friends, colleagues, and by society at large. All of us need to learn that you have the right to remain fabulous – in every situation, circumstance and condition – and that we can all make a difference and reach our own individual dreams through speaking up, persevering, and sustaining our individual sense of confidence and self-worth.”
