"Real Conversations" Career Fulfillment without Losing Yourself
featuring Katherine Wintsch, founder of the Mom Complex.
Thursday, March 14, 2013
Omni Richmond Hotel

Creating a career you love while also feeling good about being a wife, mom, daughter, friend, volunteer and more is a major challenge. And, just like “One Size Fits All” is SO NOT TRUE, one strategy doesn’t fit every woman’s professional or personal needs.

Join your fellow extraordinary women for an interactive afternoon led by RVA’s very own Katherine Wintsch, sr. vice president and group planning director at The Martin Agency. 

Katherine is the founder of the Mom Complex and was recently recognized a...s one of the 30 Most Powerful Women in Advertising by Business Insider. She'll share the most recent findings about the challenges of today’s busy career woman and lead group discussions to help discover new ideas and tactics to apply to your busy life.

Check out Katherine Wintsch's inspiring "Unmasking Motherhood" talk, which she delivered at the TEDxRVA conference on March 22.
