LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 29, 2024) — Jane Reynolds, director of product marketing at Match Group, will deliver the 2024 Irwin Warren Lecture in Advertising and Digital Media from 5-6 p.m. Monday, March 18. The lecture will be presented in the University of Kentucky Gatton Student Center Worsham Cinema and is free and open to the public.

For the past seven years, Reynolds has been responsible for acquisition, growth and retention for OkCupid and Archer, two leading dating apps from Match Group. Early on, she started as a public relations intern at Conde Nast in New York City and has since worked in various roles at other noteworthy companies such as StyleCaster and Reynolds has been featured in publications including Apple's Today Tab in the App Store, Sharebird Product Marketing podcast, Fortune and more.

In her free time, Reynolds volunteers weekly at The Junior League of the City of New York, a non-profit organization based on women coming together to better their community. Within this group, Reynolds serves on the Beacon to Broadway committee, a sector focused on guiding at-risk children to express themselves through the arts.

The Warren Lecture, housed in the UK Department of Integrated Strategic Communication, honors the memory of Irwin Warren, who created some of the nation's most successful advertising campaigns. The lecture series was established by Patrick Mutchler, a graduate of the School of Journalism and Media at the UK College of Communication and Information, who worked with Warren while in marketing with Johnson & Johnson.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
