Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute Transitions Leadership

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute announced that it will transition leadership over the coming months with Executive Director Holly Ashley departing at the end of the month to pursue interests around advocacy and women’s issues.

 

CWLI Chair Stefanie Crowe said, “Holly was with us for just over a year, but together with Program Manager Marlena Palmer and a tremendous volunteer base laid an important foundation to sustain future growth.  We are proud to have been part of her leadership evolution and remain excited about her future contributions around issues that especially impact women.”

 

Ms.

Ashley said, “Since 2014, CWLI has grown over 150% to more than 670 active members representing female leaders across fields such as engineering, government, law enforcement, finance, hospitality and more.  Along with strengthening our infrastructure this year, our relocation to The Edney and the Innovation District places our women’s leadership organization at the heart of Chattanooga’s emerging economy.  Promoting gender diversity in leadership only makes our community stronger.” 

 

Further information about the executive search will be communicated soon. 

 

Ms. Crowe said, “It’s inspiring to work every day with scores of women who have contributed to our 20+ year legacy.  A great example of the caliber of talent investing in our effort is Julie Baumgardner who is chairing our 2018 IMPACT dinner on Feb. 22. It’s a tribute to Julie’s tenacity and vision that we were able to secure Jennifer Hyman, CEO of Rent the Runway as keynote.  You do not want to miss this event.”

 

A limited number of tables are currently available for purchase online at www.cwli.org or by calling 423 394-8173. Individual tickets will go on sale Dec. 1. For more information about the event, including sponsorship opportunities call 423 394-8173. Officials said, "Special thanks to the 2018 corporate partners EPB, The Women’s Network of Miller & Martin, Synovus, and SunTrust."

All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

Oh, for decades I’ve know the annual Army-Navy football game, the latest just played this weekend, was special. A half-century ... (click for more)
