Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter


Ms. Kathleen Rich-New

Stupid Mistakes Even Smart Women Make


Women comprise more than 50% of the work force today, but still earn only 77 cents for every dollar that men earn.  What is it that men have figured out that women haven’t? Or, what is it in the system that squeezes women out? Ms. Kathleen Rich-New will share the answers to these questions and more in this highly interactive session.  

As a speaker, trainer, author and executive coach, Kathleen has more than twenty five years of human resources experience with companies such as Apple, Nortel and Silicon Graphics. Her business, Clarity Works Consulting, helps businesses hire the right person the first time and creates business clarity for companies and individuals.  Ms. Rich-New earned her MBA from the University of North Texas and a Master’s degree in International Human Resources from the University of Dallas.  She is an adjunct professor for Webster University’s Graduate School of Business and Technology for human resources, staffing, organizational behavior and marketing.

In addition to speaking at regional and national conferences, Ms. Rich-New is an accomplished author. She is the author of Looking for the Good Stuff…a Guide to Enjoying and Appreciating Life, and her most recent book, Plan B. The Real Deal Guide to Creating Your Business, designed to help individuals decide if they want to become an independent professional or start a business, and which option is the best one for them.

Please join us on Tuesday, April 28 to learn how to become a more successful business woman!
