Hollister Creative President Kim Landry is among the 24 senior executives and business owners who will provide career advice to emerging women leaders during the second-annual Ready, Set, Mentor event presented by the United Way’s Women’s Leadership Initiative Next Generation (WING) network.

This is Landry’s second year participating in the event. “I am honored to be among the very impressive women who volunteer to serve as mentors,” she says, “and it is gratifying to give back by passing on some been-there, done-that insights to help tomorrow’s women leaders overcome some of the obstacles they face.”
This year’s mentors include leaders from AmerisourceBergen, Chubb, Comcast, Deloitte, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Independence Blue Cross, Johnson & Johnson, Unisys and UPS, among others.
