Mary Burke BIO

Mary Burke founded Building Brave to inspire and empower women in living their best lives. She grew up wanting a career in business, just like her dad Dick Burke, founder of Trek Bicycles. After achieving success in the private sector, Mary’s life took an unlikely turn. In 2014 she launched a campaign to become Governor of Wisconsin, and made history becoming the first woman to win the nomination for Governor of Wisconsin from a major party. Today Mary works as a social entrepreneur and an advocate for women. Her leadership spans private, public and nonprofit sectors, with positions such as Director of European Operations for Trek Bicycle, and Wisconsin’s Secretary of Commerce. Mary earned her BS in Business Administration at Georgetown University and her MBA from Harvard University.

Speaking topic: How Women Power Up

Discovering the power of community profoundly changed Mary’s journey. Her 2014 run for Governor--with its daily onslaught of judging, criticism and attacks--threatened to destroy her. Instead, thanks to a tremendous support community, Mary unlocked her potential and discovered a version of herself she had never imagined, overcoming both self-doubt and failure. She founded Building Brave with a mission to ensure that every woman has access to a supportive community and discovers the best version of herself.
