“What I’m committed to doing is surrendering [my ambitions] to God, every day, all the time. And making sure that the things that I’m chasing after are really the things that he is putting in front of me — so that I’m always chasing and running in step with him.” — Janeen Uzzell
We first met Janeen Uzell at Believers in Business, InterVarsity’s annual conference for MBA students, where she was a keynote speaker and served on the women’s lunch panel. With more than 20 years investment of corporate strategy, business development, and start–up experience, both in the US and abroad, Janeen offers her insight, wisdom, and personal perspective related to integrating vocation and faith in Jesus. In this episode, Janeen expresses how both her ambition and God’s call on her life have shaped her career path. She also shares several of the challenges she has faced as a woman of color in technology and how she senses Christ’s presence in the midst of her vocation.
