The owner and CEO of Seattle Chocolate isn't just making sweets, she's making the future sweet for the girls and women who come after her. Ten percent of the net profits from Seattle Chocolate go to support Girls, Inc., a charity which works to empower young women. Jean says, "As a mother and a female entrepreneur, uplifting and inspiring young girls is so important to me, and we're thrilled to now be supporting Girls Inc. with every single Seattle Chocolate purchase." The work that Girls, Inc. does is vitally important, as they have an emphasis on supporting girls who face intersectional challenges, such as those based on sex, race, religion, ethnicity, immigration status, and gender identity. So go ahead, grab another chocolate bar. You're helping out the next generation of girls when you do so!
Aside from her charitable work, Jean runs what she calls a "woman-powered" business. According to Seattle Chocolate's VP of Operations Marie McNally, "The thoughtfulness and creativity that goes into every product we make, every message we send, and every flavor we create is all about bringing joy to others. Who better to do that than a bunch of mothers, sisters, and friends?"
