Skirt Strategies discusses 'throwing like a girl'

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Katie Snapp and Carol Wight of Skirt Strategies joined KRQE This Morning to discuss the recent hoopla over Little League World Series star Mo’Ne Davis, who highlighted the fact that the phrase “Throw like a girl” can be a compliment, not an insult.

Snapp and Wight are the founders of Skirt Strategies which offers insightful, convenient and affordable online leadership training for women. As leadership and business experts, Snapp and Wight formed Skirt Strategies to address the glaring need for gender balance in the workplace. Weekly emails offer subscribers tips, quick homework assignments, inspiration, podcasts and audio and video tutorials to boost their skills while effectively utilizing their time. In addition to online leadership training, Snapp and Wight offer one-on-one coaching. They also speak at events nationwide, and lead in-person workshops for groups and businesses.

Snapp and WIght are also the authors of “Skirt Strategies: 249 Success Tips for Women in Leadership.” Both have first-hand experience working in male-dominated fields. Snapp is a former engineer for the defense contractor Honeywell, and WIght is head of the New Mexico Restaurant Association. Both have forged successful careers by effectively navigating these male-dominated industries, while utilizing their female strengths. Now, they try to help other women do the same. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
