Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the leading fabric and craft specialty retailer in America, is proud to announce a Team Member development initiative designed to prepare women to ascend the company’s leadership ranks.

“Jo-Ann is committed to developing our future leaders, and we understand women face unique challenges and demands as career professionals,” said Tom Williams, senior vice president, human resources. “With those unique challenges and demands in mind, we have crafted this initiative to strengthen the company’s current and potential leaders.”

The initiative will launch in January 2013 as an extension of the company’s commitment to Team Member development. Consisting of group training sessions, peer development groups and keynote speakers, the Women in Leadership initiative will address the specific challenges that women encounter at various stages in their careers.

“With more than 20,000 women in the Jo-Ann workforce, the Women in Leadership initiative is a great addition to our existing Team Member development curriculum and one that will be paying dividends for years to come,” added Riddianne Kline, senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the nation’s largest fabric and craft retailer with locations in 49 states, was founded in 1943 as a single retail store.
