The Speaker

What if there were no limits to what women believed we could accomplish?

Katty Kay is the daughter of a British diplomat and has worked and lived all over the world. As a British journalist in Washington, DC, Kay looks at Washington from a different angle and offers a fresh perspective on American politics and international affairs that is rooted in her global background. Kay offers an interesting view on both current political events and issues impacting women today. The veteran BBC anchor has the experience and sources to reveal the story behind the headlines and provide valuable context for any audience. Kay, who interviews top U.S. and international newsmakers daily, delivers solid insights with charm and understated humor. When she is not busy making sense of the current political climate, she writes about the value of women in business.

What if we had some reliable information to help us decode the mysteries of being a woman in business?

Kay is co-author with Claire Shipman of three New York Times bestsellers. The latest, The Confidence Code for Girls: Taking Risks, Messing Up, and Becoming Your Amazingly Imperfect, Totally Powerful Self, was released in April 2018 and debuted at the number one spot on The New York Times bestseller list. In her first book, Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success, she examined the workplace revolution and inspired women to dream big, and discover a different way of weaving work into their lives – and in the process cultivate more profitable companies with happier and more productive employees. Her second book, The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance – What Women Should Know, shines light on the nuances women face in society that create barriers to success and how to overcome them.

What if we all benefited from helping women realize their IMPACT in our community?

We couldn’t be more thrilled that Ms. Kay has agreed to spend time in our city for some important conversation. Our hope is that she will open a discussion around what the evidence is saying about the high-quality impact women have  when they are given the tools they need to be confident in their role. IMPACT Chair, Gina Dhanani invites you to join us for a dynamic evening together.

A Huge Thanks to Our 2019 Corporate Partners!
