What is the Student Ambassador Monthly Speaker Series?

This monthly speaker series gives Policy Project Student Ambassadors an exclusive chance to connect with all-star leaders from across Utah—including entrepreneurs, influencers, medical professionals, politicians, athletes, and more! Each month we will spend 30 minutes learning how that speaker has made an impact in their field and listen to their advice for current students.

January's Speaker: McKenzie Bauer - Co-Founder of Thread Wallets

We are thrilled to have McKenzie Bauer join us as our first Leadership Speaker Series guest of 2023! Read on to learn more about McKenzie before joining us to learn from her about leadership and service:

"In 2015 my husband Colby and I founded Thread Wallets, a business that sells carry accessories online and in retail locations throughout the USA. Based in Provo, Utah our goal is to empower individuals to 'carry on' through both the products we sell and the lifestyle we promote. Since the early days, I gravitated toward the marketing aspects of our business and ran as the CMO until the spring of 2021 when I stepped back to pursue personal projects and to focus on our family. In the years that I was CMO, Thread was ranked one of the fastest growing companies in Utah and appeared twice on the INC. 500.

I'm a fearless advocate for women's equality and bettering the lives of minority individuals around the state of Utah."
