JOLEN ANDERSON Chief Di­ver­sity Of­fi­cer, Foster City, CA Mom to Anderson, 5, and Ad­di­son and Avery, 3 Jolen had three chil­dren un­der 3 when she was of­fered her cur­rent high-level role. “To guide me through this chal­leng­ing time, my own amaz­ing mom—a fel­low full-time work­ing mother of three—said: ‘Be there for the stuff that mat­ters, and let go of the small things. Your kids won’t re­mem­ber who cooked din­ner, changed a di­a­per or washed a bot­tle. In­stead, they will re­mem­ber the im­por­tant mo­ments, how you con­nected with them, and how you made them feel. If you get that bal­ance right, ev­ery­thing will work out just fine.’” Visa says: “Jolen has worked to im­prove em­ployee ben­e­fits, in­clud­ing ex­tended ma­ter­nity, pa­ter­nity and adop­tion leaves, and es­tab­lished and ex­panded pro­grams to re­cruit, re­tain and ad­vance di­verse ta­lent.”
