Please join us for a fireside chat with Mikaela Kiner, CEO of Reverb and author of Female Firebrands at the Stimson-Green House. The historic space in which we will host our chat is in itself significant - Harriett Stimson – and Dorothy Bullitt were female firebrands themselves!

A signed copy of the book is included with the price of your ticket. Additional copies will be available for sale.

About the Book

If you are not sure what a firebrand is, they are certain to find out in Mikaela Kiner’s powerful first book. Women of all generations will nod in recognition at the stories of 13 successful professional women from diverse backgrounds and industries as they recount the challenges they've faced in their careers and how they have overcome bias, sexism, and the power imbalance.

These women are role models not just because they’ve been successful in their careers, but because they are mission driven and doing good in the world. They are whole people—dealing with issues of work, family, balance, confidence, and the need to stay motivated and strong.

Female Firebrands is an honest, modern, and solutions-oriented guide for dealing with situations women know all too well: sexual harassment, not being taken seriously, and being talked over, passed over, underpaid, and underappreciated. Mid-career women will read this book and know they're not alone. Women earlier in their careers can save years of heartache and frustration by learning what's worked for women who came before them.

The Firebrands Featured in the Book:

Collaborator on privilege chapter: Aiko Bethea, Fred Hutch Cancer Center
