Cate founded and self-funded Luminary in 2018 with the mission to uplift, upskill, and propel women forward through all phases of their professional journeys. In order to achieve its purpose of gender diversity and women’s inclusion, Luminary has led more than 1,500 events, sessions and workshops; built a digital library with over 400 hours of downloadable content; and set up a work and social space in New York, together with a virtual platform, so that members can connect. The company has grown to include more than 2,500 individual members in 36 countries, as well as boasting over 40 corporate members. Luminary also runs a Fellowship Program which supports both women-owned businesses and women impacted by the ‘She-cession’. Last year the company acquired Declare, a premier leadership platform for women, and partnered with Bolster, to make it possible for more women to join private boards.
