  • Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV (1888PressRelease) September 19, 2012 - The nationally award-winning Hot Mommas Project represents the world's largest online women's case study library showcasing hundreds of women's stories to serve as role models and mentors for women and girls around the world. On Saturday, September 29th, these online mentors will come to life at the Hot Mommas Project third annual Sis U Women's Leadership Academy at the George Washington University School of Business.

    The following well-known leaders will be featured:

    Colette Beyer, Spokesperson for the National Cooperative Business Association

    Ellen Thrasher, Associate Administrator for the Office of Entrepreneurship Education, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)

    Kim Rosenberg, President and Co-Founder of Mixology and former semi-pro soccer player

    Theresa Alfaro Daytner, President and CEO of Daytner Construction Group and Fortune Most Powerful Entrepreneur

    "Research shows us a critical link between exposure to mentors, and career decisions for women," says Hot Mommas Project founder and George Washington School of Business faculty member Kathy Korman Frey. "We need a person or role model to look at and say, 'I can do that'. Our panelists are well-known community and business leaders dedicated to showing us precisely how they did it. This knowledge is literally priceless."

    The Hot Mommas Project Sis U Academy increases confidence 66 percent in three hours. During the session, attendees will learn why confidence is the key metric to focus on for their staff, their communities, and themselves. Attendees also learn other key information about women, power, and bringing that power to the forefront in order to work collaboratively in their workplace, with their families, and as a leader. The academy will end with a popular Hot Mommas Project exercise called "Guerrilla Mentoring" in which lasting relationships are formed with peers organized in groups who serve as mentors to one another in a structured format.

    The Hot Mommas Project is a global venture, the research for which is housed at the George Washington University School of Business and is included in the mission of the GWSB Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence. To learn more, go to
