In 2018, Women of the Future founder Pinky Lilani set up the ‘Kindness & Leadership, 50 Leading Lights’ campaign with the goal of radically challenging the global leadership conversation. Lilani aims to achieve this by celebrating leaders around the world who are using the power of kindness to make a positive impact in business and to empower change.
Jenkinson has been recognised and included in the list due to his leadership qualities and the genuine compassion and empathy he has for individuals throughout the firm, especially through his handling of the London office response to the COVID-19 pandemic that brought significant change to the firm’s people in both their working and personal lives.
A real estate lawyer, who has successfully led Reed Smith’s largest office since 2016, overseeing consecutive years of growth, Jenkinson is highly regarded and respected for his approach to leadership, the extra steps he takes to introduce and champion policies that create better workplace practices, and the genuine interest he takes in the wellbeing of everyone at the firm.
