NAPW honors Amy J. Katz, Ph.D., as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. As the largest networking organization of professional women in the country, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.
“I was moderating a business roundtable and three of the women were working in family businesses,” recalls Dr. Katz. ”I noticed that their experiences were different from other young professional women.”
Realizing this group of women faced unique challenges when it came to business, Dr. Katz went on to establish Daughters in Charge. The online platform offers professional women working in family businesses the ability to connect with a community of like-minded women along with a wealth of resources to guide them on their professional journeys.
Daughters in Charge is a division of Baker & Daboll, LLC, which specializes in executive coaching with individuals and groups. Dr. Katz, an Organizational Psychologist with a Ph.D. in Social Psychology, is part Owner and Senior Executive Coach of Baker & Daboll. Her experience as a Social Worker has helped to form her excellent insight into family dynamics. For 15 years, Dr. Katz has worked as a consultant to family businesses. “I have a good background and consider myself a Coach and Facilitator,” she says.
Dr. Katz’ passion now is to focus on daughters and other women in leadership positions in family businesses. She recently published Daughters in Charge: Learning to Lead in Your Family Business. On the Daughters in Charge website, members can interact with an international community of women and will find Dr. Katz’ weekly podcasts, informative blog posts, educational courses and other helpful resources. “We are building a community of Daughters in Charge, offering connections and support so they can learn from each other and strengthen their family businesses,” says Dr. Katz.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive networking forum to successful professional women where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, tools and benefits, members interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
