FOUNDER

After decades of trying to reconcile her dedication to active citizenship, her desire to make a positive social impact, and her innate entrepreneurial instinct,  founder and creator Katharine Cornfield discovered social business.  Finally, a way to do all three!  Had ambiSHEous existed when she was a kid, it probably would not have taken so long.

Drawing on more than two decades of senior-level experience – from political aide and public service manager to non-profit founder and small business owner – Katharine is a forward thinking change-maker and entrepreneur who is never shy about starting something new.  In addition to fostering girl power, she believes in building better cities, creating social change through business, and shaping a more equitable, inclusive world.

She's fine with you calling her ambitious.

I have always been a change-maker and an entrepreneur, even before I knew there were such things. From politics and policy-making to small-business and social change, my path has never been a straight one. ambiSHEous is my way of sharing all the things I’ve learned along the way.
— Katharine Cornfield, Founder of ambiSHEous™
