This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

In the decades she’s spent in the working world, Katie Holland has made it her personal mission to support and grow leaders. Her latest endeavor is using her background and connections to do what inspires her most … supporting women with her leadership and networking organization, Illuminate.

Through events held throughout the year, Illuminate is bringing together some of Utah’s brightest women leaders so they can connect with one another, receive training and provide mentorship for the next generation of executives in our fast-growing economy, which Forbes has named top in the nation for 8 of the last 9 years! Events include presentations from women at all levels of experience, who present on different topics. And don’t be surprised if you see a few men there because Illuminate extends invitations for 10 CEOs to every event. It changes the conversation in the workplace when men are involved, one reason they give out the annual Illuminate Manbassador Award for a male executive working to promote women in the workplace.

In two years of launching Illuminate, over 3,000 women have attended events, and Katie continues to focus on increasing awareness. Coming up on Sept. 11 is the Illuminate Fall Summit, which will be held Sept. 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at This is the Place Heritage Park.
