Becoming Superwoman: Running a Family Business in a Male-Dominated Industry

Women Business Leaders Breakfast Series

FREE livestream webinar September 10 at 8 a.m. Kristy Knichel, CEO and President of Knichel Logistics, will share her story about the many complexities of taking over her family-owned business in the highly male-dominated field of transportation. While there have been strides in recruiting more women into logistics over the years, there is still a significant gender gap in leadership roles. Join Kristy as she discusses how she overcame the pressure of being “the only woman in the room” while simultaneously handling the complicated task of running a business with family. With over 24 years of logistics experience, Kristy has plenty of advice for everyone - leaders, entrepreneurs, anyone who works in a family business, those who work in an industry with a gender imbalance, or all of the above! 

The Women Business Leaders Breakfast Series features prominent regional women business leaders speaking on a variety of progressive business topics. Casual networking and a continental breakfast precede engaging and interactive training presentations on topics essential in business such as innovative entrepreneurship, strategic business growth, unique marketing strategies, and logistical business planning. Each speaker provides key takeaways on the topics covered. The Breakfast series is open to everyone to attend regardless of gender.
