Demi Knight Clark is a self-professed “spitfire” and energy ball who envisions a world where #20PercentBy2020 is not only a smashed ceiling by thousands, but also women and men are equal in all trades. As the “only woman in the room” much of her career (and seeking out these situations), she is a passionate advocate for equal representation at the table in all things – from boardrooms to sports endeavors.
She is owner of Knight Clark Collective, a boutique consulting firm servicing all industries (primarily construction); & an avid Wattie Ink Hit Squad Ironman triathlete, mountain climber & marathoner supporting Kathrine Switzer’s #261Fearless movement engaging women in running. After climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro & the summits of Iceland in early 2019, she was accepted to Yale School of Management’s Global Executive Leadership Program & “said no more excuses” to starting She Built This City.
