About Tenshey, Inc.
Tenshey, Inc. is a tech-enabled startup dedicated to advancing gender diversity through personalized executive and career coaching services. Pronounced “ten-she,” the company’s name is derived from the Japanese word for “angels” because leaders thrive when they have a strong support system of angels including coaches, mentors and sponsors. Tenshey was founded by Maggie Chan Jones, the first female CMO of SAP and named one of the world’s most influential CMOs by Forbes. Maggie realized that her ascension to the C-suite in the male-dominated tech industry was rare and shouldn’t be. It is Tenshey’s mission to change that.
Members benefit from Maggie’s experiences in the C-suite and her team of personally selected, certified executive coaches. Tenshey coaches support a wide range of industries and offer a unique collection of perspectives to drive high-performing, diverse and inclusive workplaces.
