On October 4, 2017 the St. Louis chapter of WIFI hosted over 70 women for an evening with Karlyn Mattson, the Chief Merchandising Officer at Famous Footwear. Nike hosted this event in their amazing offices in Clayton and we really cannot thank them enough for their generosity.
Xanni Becker helped moderate the conversation as Karlyn shared her words of advice with the audience. She was authentic and truly inspired this group of women. She encouraged them among other things to think about how they can add value to their lives every day, to not compare their careers to others and to make mentoring an important part of their lives. She also talked about the balance of being a working mother and the importance of not missing those big events in your child or children’s lives.
The attendees left with a renewed outlook and motivation and were looking forward to incorporating Karlyn’s advice into their everyday lives.
