Lady Boss was created so brave women who are striking out on their own can share their journey. 

Our Mission

Lady Boss Collective brings women “solo-preneurs” together for support, guidance and inspiration.

Our Values

We believe in the shared strength of women with diverse ideas and backgrounds.

We think collaboration based on authenticity and empathy is immensely powerful.

We know that support, guidance and inspiration from others is critical to our success.

Our Story

Michelle Calcagni (our Founder) sometimes says that she started Lady Boss Collective to cut down on the expense of going out to lunches with so many different brilliant women, but we think there’s more to the story. 

Our Advisors

Lady Boss Collective relies on the insights and expertise of our Advisory Board to shape and define who we are and how we work. Our Board Members bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their roles. 

Ms. Fella created her leadership-focused company while also having been an advocate for women in leadership throughout her career, and her unique understanding of the entrepreneurial journey plays a critical role in shaping our path forward. 

Karen King, Ph.D.

Dr. King’s combined experience as a member of multiple non-profit boards and as a professor of public management helps us shape our short- and long-term strategies so we can effectively manage our organization today and into the future.

Sallie Matthews

As the CEO of a successful professional association and conference management firm, Ms. Matthews is the key to our relationship with our members and her experience informs how we create ongoing benefits for LBC members.

Ms. McCabe brings a wealth of member- and board-level non-profit experience to LBC and plays a key role in making sure our operations are successfully supporting our activities and that we hold ourselves to the highest standards of performance.

Our Policies

Lady Boss Collective is committed to ensuring that it is a welcoming and safe environment for every Member. We created policies to help us meet this commitment.
