You need a network of strong women – we’ve put them at your “table.”


Chase is the presenting sponsor of 100 Wise Women

At every 100 Wise Women event, you have an opportunity to:

  • Connect with distinguished women from all career stages and backgrounds.
  • Learn by exchanging ideas, sharing concerns, and discovering expertise from the women you might not otherwise meet.
  • Grow as you strengthen your leadership capacity and get empowered.

There’s a reason 100 Wise Women events sell out year after year. Louisville area women know it’s the best, easiest, and most impactful way to gain inspiration and expand your circle of career connections. This year we need it more than ever! Whether we are sitting together at a table or in a virtual setting – you’ll hear remarkable leadership journeys and enjoy facilitated small group conversations.

The 2020 keynote speakers

The 2021 speakers will be announced in spring 2021. If you’re not already receiving email updates from the Center, join our email list to be notified as soon as we make the announcement!
