MEET THE SPEAKER: 

Kathryn Sollmann is a career coach, speaker, and author changing the narrative about women and work. Moving away from "can women have it all" and "lean in" mantras, she talks about work, not in terms of achieving power, but squarely in the context of uninterrupted earning and long-term financial security. Kathryn has connected with thousands of smart, highly educated women who have two huge caregiving roles (children and aging parents) and feel out of step with current pressures to “get to the top”. She sees relatively few women aiming for the life-encompassing C-Suite and too many at risk for costly career breaks. In her presentations to corporations, she encourages another form of diversity—the diversity of ambition—and delivers the message that “Up Is Not the Only Way Forward”. She helps women unapologetically lean “in between”—through sustainable, professional, lucrative, flexible roles that fit and fund life. Her book, Ambition Redefined: Why the Corner Office is Not for Every Woman & What to Do Instead launches October 9th.
