Meet Jennifer:

Jennifer McCollum is an accomplished CEO, speaker, consultant, and author. She has been featured in notable publications like the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Forbes. As the first female CEO of the global leadership development firm Linkage, she redefined the company’s mission to change the face of leadership. Now at Catalyst, Jennifer continues her mission to accelerate progress for women in the workplace.


“It takes courage and the self-awareness and the commitment to become a better leader every day.”


“If I can role model what ‘become’ really means, then it creates an environment for everybody else to do the same.”

“Women leaders have had to contort ourselves over many years to try and fit in.”


Key Takeaways:

Leadership is Evolutionary: Leadership involves constant personal growth and the ability to inspire and engage others toward shared goals.

Role Modeling is Crucial: The behavior of leadership teams can set a powerful example that shapes the entire organizational culture.


Challenges for Women in Leadership: Women often face unique barriers in the workplace, including overcoming stereotypes and adjusting to traditionally male-dominated environments.


Jennifer highlights the importance of intentional leadership and inclusivity. Her experiences and strategies provide actionable insights for anyone looking to foster a more supportive and effective workplace.
