If you think about the business world, you come to realize that the majority of successful businesses are ran and operated under the authority of men. For Jackson Family Wines, they work hard to bring more females into the business world. Jess Jackson was born during the Great Depression and even though this period of time was one of the lowest points in history, he still believed that more women needed to be involved in business practices.
Jess Jackson married Barbara Banke and they had a number of children. Julia is one of the kids that is involved with the family business. Her and her sister Katherine work for the family business. Julia grew up inside the grape fields and helped her family pull grapes during the summer and on weekends. It was her father that believed that if the kids are actively involved at an early age, they are better to understand the level of hard work that is needed to make a business a success.

Julia Jackson attended Scripps College and later on went to a Stanford summer program. She graduated with her bachelor’s degree and attended the summer program to help her to become better acquainted with business practices. Once she completed the summer program, Julia became involved in the family business. She went on to help her mother to create the nonprofit that helps more women become involved in their communities.
Cambria Seeds of Empowerment is the nonprofit that Julia and her mother started to help the community. Julia and her mother will handout $100,000 per year annually to make sure that more women are involved in businesses. The program is aimed to help those who are less likely to succeed without the help of others in the business world. They strive to make sure that the business world is more equal than before which allows for more women to get involved.
