Welcome Message from Summit Chairs

 

 

On behalf of the Junior League of Nashville, we invite you to join us for the Rise! Women’s Summit on January 29, 2022. 

 

Our inaugural Summit in 2021 empowered us to move forward despite such a challenging 2020, and our 2022 virtual summit will be just as inspiring. 

 

Our planning committee has a power-packed day of inspiring panels and presentations designed to help women across Middle Tennessee kick off their 2022 with a renewed sense of purpose and direction.

 

A recent McKinsey study confirmed 1 in 4 women have seriously considered taking a step back from their careers in the past 12 months, and 80% of those women have left the workforce since the pandemic. 

 

Our incredible lineup of speakers will help you restore, refocus and refine how you can live a more intentional life and lead with authentic purpose. 

 

We hope you will make plans to join us for this virtual conference and invite a friend! 

 

Always remember: Your life is an occasion; rise to it!
