About the Rise! Women's Leadership Summit

When the Junior League of Nashville was founded in 1922, those visionary women knew they wanted to create strong community leaders. That impact has made its mark on Nashville and Middle Tennessee.  

Proceeds from the Rise! Women's Leadership Summit help continue that tradition. By purchasing a ticket, you are ensuring JLN has critical funding to continue impacting our community in the areas of childhood literacy and alleviating poverty.

2023 - 2024 Summit Leaders

A very special thank you to the following women for their help in planning this years event.
This event would not exist without their extraordinary talent and commitment.
