On Thursday, April 22 at 7 p.m., Kelly Kolar-Eyman, along with seven other Cincinnati-area women, is being honored by the YWCA Greater Cincinnati chapter as a 2021 Career Woman of Achievement at the chapter’s 42nd Anniversary Program.
Established in 1980 to increase community awareness and appreciation of the diverse contributions of women in the workforce and in the community, the Career Woman of Achievement honor is further attestation of Kelly’s career success, dynamic leadership skills, and ability to serve as a role model to the community and other women.
Kelly Kolar demonstrates how creativity intersects with community and business every day. She believes, “if you love your city, it will love you back,” and it shows in her work and impact as one of the preeminent designers and connectors of creatives in the region and beyond.
A graduate of UC’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP), Kelly focuses on arts, education and entrepreneurship, where she makes sure that diversity and inclusion stay at the center of all she touches. With the launch of the Kolar Experience Institute last year, Kelly showed that the creative community could work side by side within cities to co-create and collaborate in transformational endeavors. Through thought leadership, research, design thinkers, architects, designers and business leaders, she makes connections between businesses and human experiences to create a brighter and more enhanced future that has a vision and is empathy-based.
