Bold in Business Annual Forum

October 4, 2019
8:00am - 10:00am

Presented by the Women’s Business Council

Tee Marie Hanible
will share her principles on being a badass at this year’s Bold in Business Annual Forum.


Drawing on her experience as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, reality star and Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, Tee will serve up eleven principles to awaken your inner badass and thrive in the face of adversity.


Tee has overcome more challenges than many will ever face. After surviving the death of her father, enduring foster care, being expelled from school, and even becoming a victim of gun violence herself, she joined military reform school where she began uncovering her inner warrior. She was a member of the first class of females permitted to attend the Marine Combat Training course. She became a Marine Gunnery Sergeant, deployed to Iraq for the initial invasion in 2003 and was the only female to go out with her unit. After two decades of service in the Marine Corps, Tee was cast as the first female military expert on the hit Fox TV show, American Grit.


With insightful honesty and wisdom, set against the backdrop of her life, Tee will help others realize their own innate strength. From surviving the streets of Chicago’s south side to pioneering the opening of combat roles for women in the Marine Corps, Tee reveals the story of how she became a warrior and how you can do it too.

Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of The Warrior Code.
