Chattanooga Women's Leadership Institute Announces Game ChangeHer Class

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Chattanooga Women's Leadership Institute announces the new Game ChangeHer class of 2021, CWLI’s immersive mentor training program. The 16 session program will offer a combination of personal and professional development topics that strengthen the skills and abilities of women and provide them with the tools to serve as effective mentors and leaders throughout the region.

After participants work through a module, they will be paired as mentors with young women from Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy to apply their knowledge in real time.

The program will run from September and will conclude with a graduation ceremony in May 2021. 

This year’s 12 participants include: Jenelle Pierce (The Jump Fund);  Leah Christensen (Tennessee Valley Authority);  Stephanie Granger (Walker County Schools);  Becca Denison (Henderson, Hutcherson & McCullough PLLC); Chandler McKinney (Prison Prevention Center); Leta Gibbs (BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee); Courtney Keehan (Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel); Ambria Reese (First Horizon); Blair Brown (EPB); Amy Baushke (Alleo Health Systems); Emily Boyd (Browne, Draper & Land Financial Concepts); Sloan Reid (The GLOW Movement).

"I loved participating in the Game ChangeHer program and would highly recommend the experience to any woman seeking to network with professional women in the community, learn from women leaders who excel in their careers, as well as participate in a dynamic mentoring experience with the women leaders of the future,” said Martha Burkhart, Class of 2019-20 and co-chair of the 2020-21 Game ChangeHer Committee. 

"Game ChangeHer is one of my favorite programs that CWLI offers to the community," said Marlena Palmer, chair of the Game ChangeHer committee. "There is so much professional and personal growth that happens over the course of the program and now we have added the mentoring of young ladies! Not only is this incredible, dynamic group of women going to impact one another, they are going to positively influence the generations coming up behind them. At the core, this is what CWLI is about: providing the opportunity and means to grow the women in our community, so they can influence and impact their communities and those that come up behind them."
