Women Business Leaders Breakfast Series

November 13, 2015
08:00 AM - 09:30 AM
James Laughlin Music Hall, Chatham University Shadyside Campus


Topic:“Women Turning the Tables: Artisan Entrepreneurship”
Speaker: Kate Joyce, Artist & Furniture Maker

Kate Joyce began her career as an art student at the Carnegie Museums and the University of Pittsburgh. Working her way through The Boys Club and YMCA wood shops, she eventually took on the Pittsburgh Carpenter’s Union in her quest to design, fabricate and place her original fine art and fine furniture. Kate will talk about the challenges she has faced, and in turn, of her challenge to the then exclusively male trade unions. She will elaborate on her quest for the critical training required to develop her talents. She ultimately embraced entrepreneurship, founding her business, Kate Joyce Company, in design, art and furniture. She will describe the steps taken to establish her work and her art as a personal, artistic and viable business success in a traditionally male-dominated industry.
