The Women Catalysts Story


SCROLL DOWN

The Women Catalysts Story


Our Story

You know what they say: the best plans are made while flying kites and drinking beers in the park. We dreamed up Women Catalysts one fine day with the goal of inspiring more women to action. What began as a passion project by two best friends is now a growing movement with thousands of women (and a few good men too!). 


Founders Lindsay Jean Thomson and Kim Hunter are magnetic community weavers who hold space for possibility to take root.

Jenna Starkey

My goals for this year are...
To fuel and challenge my body to help make my mind mentally strong (through lots of hikes, skiing, getting my yoga certification, biking all over Seattle, and new cool classes like aerial arts and rock-climbing).

Here's how you can help me...
Encourage your friends in Seattle to join our local WC chapter!

Helping people figure out what motivates them towards and/or blocks them from their dreams!

My favorite resource is...
The online library app Overdrive for unlimited free audiobooks and kindle downloads. 

Courtney Irvin

Prosperity, learning, and more Women Catalysts events. I'm challenging myself to stick to my budget (for reals this time) and gain a new professional skill. I also plan on bringing more WC programs to Seattle with my badass co-leader Jenna. 

Here's how you can help me...
By telling me how I can help you. I really want to hear from the community about what types of programs and events they want to see from WC. Or if you have a really great bar rec in Seattle for our next WC happy hour!

One of my best talents is...
Creating experiences. 

My favorite resources are...
The Robinhood app and my stock-savvy boss ladies.

Katie Tilson

My goals for this year are...
To find and recognize something I'm grateful for every day. I feel like if I'm grateful, more other things will come more naturally or at least I'll be able to forgive myself more if I perhaps fail on a goal I set.

Here's how you can help me... 
Remind me to be grateful, especially for those dark days.

One of my best talents is...
Talking to people about making any kind of change. Hit me up if you want to chat.

My favorite resources are...
My fingers and a keyboard. I process by writing out how I'm feeling. Whether you share it with someone or not is up to you, but you'd be surprised how cathartic it is to make sense of what's circulating in your mind into the written word.
