#GoBeyond with Jenn Halweil

Jenn Halweil is an electrical engineer turned story engineer on a mission to amplify inspiring stories of individuals breaking ground in science, technology, leadership and beyond, to inspire a new wave of innovation in the process. Jenn is the Founder and Chief Story Engineer of #GoBeyond, a full service production and educational media company dedicated to uncovering stories that challenge what we as humans know to be possible. When she is not documenting VR for the USGA, digital transformation for EXL, or machine learning algorithms for Ferrari, she is focused on championing diversity and inclusion in STEM through a number of initiatives, including documenting Chloe Capital's #InvestInWomen tour to deploy over $1.5M in capital to female led tech startups across the country and this Forbes piece on the developer of the Brooklyn Bridge: Emily Warren Roebling. 

Most recently, she directed and executive produced, Financially Naked, which broke 1M+ views online. Financially Naked focuses on financial literacy, following the journeys of six individuals as they work with their trainers to overcome student loan, medical, and credit debt. Her work has been featured in more than 100 publications, and her content has received millions of views, including features in Forbes, Scientific American, The Economist, and most recently a Marvel comic as a real life superhero.


"And so I think if we're going to shift viewing and trusting women as authority figures and society at large, this (STEM) is the place to start to really crack that ceiling enough that we can go on to the next level” - Jenn Halweil
