Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®) today announced its sponsorship of Together Live, a unique national touring event designed for women that brings together diverse thought leaders, activists, artists, athletes and celebrities for an evening of inspired talks, interviews and interactive conversation.
Emceed by co-founder Jennifer Rudolph Walsh and headlined by co-founder and bestselling author of “Love Warrior” Glennon Doyle, retired soccer star and activist Abby Wambach and bestselling author Luvvie Ajayi, Together Live focuses on finding life’s purpose, overcoming fear and influencing change. Together Live uses storytelling to build a community for people of all backgrounds, where speakers share their unique experiences and inspire attendees to take action.
Jackson will serve as a major sponsor of the 2017 tour, which kicked off Sept. 18 in Portland, Oregon, and then made its way to Seattle on Sept. 21. Additional tour locations include San Jose, California (Sept. 26); Phoenix (Sept. 28); Austin, Texas (Oct. 3); Washington, D.C. (Oct. 12); Nashville, Tennessee (Oct. 17); Minneapolis (Oct. 19); Chicago (Oct. 24); and Philadelphia (Oct. 26).
“Together Live is a wonderful event that captures the essence of Jackson’s commitment to helping people achieve financial freedom, pursue their purpose and live the lives they want,” said Emilio Pardo, senior vice president and chief marketing and communications officer for Jackson. “At Jackson, we believe every American deserves the opportunity to live life well. We’re proud to partner with such an inspirational group of women.”
Along with the tour, Together Live offers a free app that features stories of people who are actively pursuing their purpose. The app also allows users to create community groups, where they can organize meet-ups, volunteer initiatives and mentorship opportunities throughout the year, making it easy for users to take actionable steps in pursuing their purpose. Additionally, the app features articles and other unique content from Jackson that will inspire and guide people as they pursue financial freedom. Later this year, Jackson will provide content from leading financial empowerment and life planning experts in Together Live’s podcast series, “Do It On Purpose.”
“Storytelling is a powerful tool that not only helps uncover purpose but also motivates people into action,” said Rudolph Walsh, who created Together Live after designing Oprah Winfrey’s The Life You Want tour. “We hope our attendees come away feeling they can transform their lives and make a difference in the world by harnessing their strengths and passions.”
To create an inclusive experience, tickets start at only $25 and are available on the Together Live website. For more information on how Americans can secure financial freedom, please visit the Jackson Financial Freedom Studio.
