As an author, speaker & coach, Kathryn Sollmann keeps women working toward financial security—alongside child & aging parent caregiving. She co-founded one of the first companies helping women return to work, and has created hundreds of workshops to help current professionals sustain & advance flexible careers.
In her book, "Ambition Redefined: Why the Corner Office Doesn't Work for Every Woman & What to Do Instead" (Nicholas Brealey, October 9th), she calls for no-apologies independence from the "lean in", "break the glass ceiling" mantra. A mother of two daughters, Kathryn has worked in many flexible ways—negotiating flexible full-time & part-time schedules with employers and working in a home office as an entrepreneur, telecommuter & freelancer—all while managing a busy household.
A frequent media resource on flexwork, Kathryn challenges the status quo, debunks work-life myths—and empowers women to own their long-term financial security and be creative, realistic and unstoppable in blending work & life.
