Frey, a former Harvard graduate student, established the Hot Mommas concept when she designed a firm comprised of highly skilled consultants who specialized in planning bootcamps with a 94 percent success rate. The project gained momentum through student interest during her time at George Washington University, and Frey decided to write her first case study. The Hot Mommas Project is the recipient of a Coleman Foundation Case Award, and Frey currently serves on the board of United Women in Business and The Closet.

The colloquium also will feature a panel discussion on mentoring, a Metzger Award presentation and networking opportunities.
