Women in Flavor and Fragrance Commerce recently gathered at the Chart House in Weehawken, NJ to pay tribute to its Woman of the Year: senior FONA account executive Joanne Kennedy.
“I’m very humbled,” Kennedy says of her award, “because I look at the cast of women out there that went before me and how much they accomplished. I’m very honored to be recognized and hope my past and future work with the WFFC will be an inspiration to other people that may want to get involved, but don’t know how to go about it.”
Kennedy explains that the WFFC’s activities are the result of a dedicated membership, and that her own involvement has given her a sense of accomplishment. “I’ve always been so impressed at how people [within WFFC] take on an action plan and make a promise to do something and do it,” she says, noting that this level of commitment is not always the norm in industry organizations.
