Presenting Sponsor:

Every woman needs a network of strong women in their lives to grow their confidence, courage, and connections.

This is true in a “normal” year, but even more so while we’re struggling to lead our teams and families through difficult times. Every woman has been pushed to be even stronger. The 100 Wise Women networking series creates space for that strength and leadership to be acknowledged and celebrated – in ourselves, and the incredible keynote speakers that share their struggles and stories. While anchored in Louisville, a virtual format allows us to expand these stories to women everywhere.

If it wasn’t already obvious by her title(s), Dr. Ashley Anderson is a powerhouse of a woman. They have included:

  • Co-owner of Athena Health and Wellness (a women’s health practice that is the first of its kind in Louisville)
  • Women’s health nurse practitioner
  • Overseer of the Miss Kentucky Scholarship Organization
  • Founding partner of fashion boutique AFMThreads
  • Record-holding captain for Berea College’s women’s basketball team
  • International runway model
  • Actress
  • Radio personality
  • Pageant competitor

Above all, her favorite ‘titles’ are wife and mom. She is the wife of NCAA and NBA champion Derek L. Anderson, Sr. They have two sons, Atlas and Ace. Raised in Louisville, Ashley has a fascinating life history. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Berea College and her Master of Science and Ph.D. in Nursing from the University of Louisville.

Join us on April 7th to hear ‘wise words’ from Ashley that you can apply to your personal and professional journey. Additionally, enjoy the opportunity to connect and share in our facilitated breakout groups with distinguished women from all career stages and backgrounds.

You need a network of strong women at your (virtual or literal) table – and we’d love for YOU to be at ours.
