Leadership Workshop

Beauty Beneath the Dirt Film Screening & Leadership Workshop


Katherine Imp, a University of Illinois College of Law alum, will be hosting a leadership workshop on campus next Thursday, Oct. 18. Katherine will also be on campus that day to screen her award-winning documentary feature, Beauty Beneath the Dirt.

Before coming to Illinois, Katherine worked as a door-to-door fundraiser for a number of nationally-recognized, non-profit organizations and was consistently ranked as one of the best fundraisers in the country.  She then went on to work for Outward Bound, leading 30-day canoeing trips for at-risk youth. Though Katherine’s formal education is in law, her background, entrepreneurial skills and creative interests led her to produce, market, and distribute the feature film, Beauty Beneath the Dirt <http://beautybeneaththedirt.com> , while simultaneously practicing law at the prestigious Chicago law firm, Segal, McCambridge Singer & Mahoney, Ltd.. These endeavors prompted her to launch http://ringleaderkate.com, a blog dedicated to providing its audience with tools and tips to succeed, both personally and professionally.
