Tory Johnson’s career path can be traced to the pain of a pink slip. She dropped out of Emerson College for a chance to work at ABC News and then jumped to NBC News, only to be fired unexpectedly a couple years later. The permanent scar from that experience inspired her to shift from employee to entrepreneur and in 1999 she founded Women For Hire. Now in its 12th year, the company hosts high caliber diversity career expos across the country, attracting talented women and leading employers. Last year, she launched Spark & Hustle to serve current and aspiring small business owners through conferences and coaching programs. As the workplace contributor on ABC’s Good Morning America, Tory is a favorite among viewers who appreciate her no-nonsense career advice. She’s a New York Times bestselling author who lives with her family in New York City. Learn more at toryjohnson.com and connect with her at Facebook.com/Tory and Twitter.com/ToryJohnson.
