"I am so excited to be named along with such talented individuals," said Sennett about receiving this prestigious award. “Philadelphia Business Journal’s Women of Distinction highlights the skill and expertise that so many of our region’s women bring to the workplace each day.”

In addition to Sennett’s work as a partner at Jackson-Cross Partners, LLC, she also makes time to serve at organizations whose mission she supports, such as PathWays PA. “The work of PathWays PA is vital to ensuring that all families have an opportunity to become self-sufficient,” said Sennett.

Presented by PNC Bank, the event will bring together 400 of the region's newsmakers for networking and an inspiring awards ceremony. Winners will be profiled in a special section of the Philadelphia Business Journal's November 21 weekly edition. A day of event raffle will benefit the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO).

"We had numerous high-quality applications for Women of Distinction this year, and my only regret is that we couldn't honor more," said Craig Ey, Editor-in-Chief, the Philadelphia Business Journal. "This year's class of winners embodies all of what makes the Philadelphia region great. They are talented, passionate about whey they do and committed to personal, professional and community success."
