As a young entrepreneur passionate about closing the gender leadership gap, Katlyn Grasso founded GenHERation® when she was an undergrad at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. When Katlyn was a senior at Penn, she received the inaugural President’s Engagement Prize, which provides graduating seniors with $150,000 to develop ventures that have the potential to change the world, to build GenHERation® into a global community. Described as “a force of nature” by former Penn President Dr. Amy Gutmann, Katlyn is an international speaker, researcher, television contributor, and board member. Katlyn tells the young women of GenHERation®, “If you can see it, you can be it” because she believes that surrounding yourself with relatable role models and embracing new experiences allows you to envision the best possible future for yourself.
