Mariama Jelman
Global Account Director & Chair Gender ECG at EssenceMediacom


Mariama has been at EssenceMediacom for over 18 years, working on NBCUniversal and looking after their international media across 25+ markets. Upon return from maternity leave, she decided to get involved in the ECGs as she is passionate about promoting gender equality at EMC.

Mariama loves a wide range of movies, so she considers herself lucky to have been working with NBC Universal all this time. Outside of work, her passion is for all things food-related, and she even did a degree in Nutrition.

Mariama was late to motherhood, having her first daughter Leila in her late 30s. Although she hasn’t been directly affected by fertility issues or loss, becoming pregnant wasn’t necessarily quick or easy either. She has seen the impact that fertility challenges and losses have had on her friends and fellow colleagues, so she wants to support others, help educate managers, and raise awareness across the agency.
