Michelle interviews the inspiring Lynn Johnson. Lynn is a visionary entrepreneur, speaker, girl advocate, and Co-Founder/CEO of Spotlight: Girls– a certified B Corp that inspires, educates, and activates girls & women to take center stage. A multi-media platform and summer camp, Spotlight: Girls gives girls the skills to step into their light and become the leaders we’ve all been waiting for.
In 2016, Lynn raised over $300,000 in capital to grow her business and prepare to franchise Go Girls! ™ – their popular summer camp – nationally. A sought-after speaker and facilitator, her work has been recognized by Ashoka Changemakers, SheEO, and ICA Fund Good Jobs. Lynn is the very first recipient of the Force for Good Fund, an accelerator focused on women/people-of-color entrepreneurs growing best-for-the world businesses. Most recently, she became the winner of SheKnows Media’s #ThePitch – a platform and video series launched to elevate, connect and coach female entrepreneurs.
Lynn works as a coach for Jenny Kassan Consulting and serves on the National Advisory Board of Teaching Artists Guild, the Board of Directors of the How Kids Learn Foundation, and the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women. She and her wife and co-founder, Allison Kenny, live and work in Oakland, CA with their yappy dogs and squirrely Go Girl!, playing theater games at the dinner table and fighting to see who can be the bossiest.
