BETSY KAUFFMAN is a globally recognized Organizational Agility Coach with more than 20 years of experience working in Fortune 500 companies as well as the Founder, CEO, and Coach at Cross Impact, speaker, and mentor in the Charlotte Women in Business Mentoring Program. In addition to a Bachelor of Business Administration from James Madison University, she spent 20+ years working in corporate America trying to figure out how to balance motherhood, working full time, and climbing the corporate ladder in a competitive tech environment where women weren’t supportive of each other. Experts point to a broken rung at the first step to manager level as holding women back. For every 100 men who are promoted from entry-level roles to manager positions, only 87 women are promoted. As a result, men significantly outnumber women at the manager level, and women can never catch up. There are simply too few women to promote to senior leadership positions because the best candidates are often held back at the stage she calls “the messy middle”. And the disparity is even more glaring in senior leadership where only one in four C-suite leaders is a woman. Over the years, Betsy learned to find her voice and use it to positively support and influence colleagues, clients, and various companies. In 2014, Betsy started Cross Impact when she realized the organizational work she was doing and 1:1 leadership coaching were desperately needed in organizations worldwide.
