At the heart of AWE is a laser focus on the behavioral changes which create a paradigm shift in the promotion and advancement of corporate women. Molly is thrilled to be a part of that shift through one-on-one relationship building with executives and as a corporate trainer.
While working in the technology industry in 2012, Molly realized that there was a significant
underrepresentation of women CIOs. This led her to be involved in starting an organization to help women in IT connect with leaders through networking and mentoring. In joining AWE, Molly is able to fully commit herself to her lifelong passion of advancing women’s issues by working with CEO Meiko Takayama to launch and grow AWE’s Chicago-based membership.
She has a passion for helping people identify what their next career move should be and how to
achieve professional advancement. She is also heavily involved with IC Stars, a non-profit that trains inner-city youth for jobs in technology. She attended Miami University where she earned a BA in Marketing.
Molly empowers people to be fearless and ask for what they want out of life!
