With over two decades of experience spanning both corporate and non-profit, heart-centred leadership has been the guiding star of Jen Murtagh’s career. An award-winning and values-based leader, Jen has successfully led national campaigns on anti-bullying, raised millions for vulnerable youth and helped advance gender equity through her work with a variety of women’s causes.
As an ICF accredited leadership coach, Jen supports women to live + lead bravely through her 1:1 coaching, workshops, speaking and signature Brave Leadership for Women group coaching program. In 2021, Jen co-founded Maturn – Canada’s first maternity leave program and is on a mission to turn the motherhood penalty into the motherhood opportunity. Working with individuals and organizations, Maturn helps build inclusive and equitable organizational cultures by supporting mothers throughout the maternity leave lifecycle and through their transition back to work.
Jen is a Business in Vancouver ‘Forty Under 40’ Award Winner and Greater Vancouver Board of Trade ‘Women of Promise’. As a community champion, she has volunteered thousands of hours for countless charities and in 2017 fulfilled a lifelong dream by travelling to Africa to lead mentoring + goal-setting workshops with her favourite non-profit One Girl Can.
