Having experienced the empowerment of entrepreneurship first hand, Ms. Kirk co-founded the Path Forward Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This passion was fueled from six years instructing the internationally-acclaimed ACTiVATE® program at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), which the Center has now taken over to expand internationally. Through this program, which was named “Best Specialty Entrepreneurship Program” by the US Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Julie is expanding her proven “Boot in the ButtTM" facilitation process to accelerate women’s business and leadership growth, resulting in expanded opportunities for them as well as the communities they serve. She extends her passions into the for-profit realm as CEO and Chief Muse of Path Forward International, LLC, which is dedicated to igniting results-oriented, sustainable innovation cultures and programs within corporations worldwide. By leveraging the entrepreneurship development process from the Center, Path Forward International shows large corporate entities how diversity and innovation accelerate competitive results for both their employees and in building capacity for their vendors. Ms. Kirk is an award winning entrepreneur, receiving the Athena Award in 2004 as recognition for her contributions to other business women and the community and was named to Maryland's Top 100 Women 2005 and 2008 sponsored by The Daily Record. She also currently chairs the DC Chapter of the Women Presidents’ Organization.
