Passionate leadership, this year’s theme for the East Tennessee Women’s Leadership Summit, requires being able to boldly follow your passion wherever it may lead you. Sometimes that path may be a surprise!
The February Salon will feature a panel of three women who have left established careers to seek success in new directions. This panel will feature Raeus Jae Cannon, Dianna Glandon, and Karen Jernigan. Raeus left her career as a drug and alcohol counselor to explore running an alternative newspaper, a greeting card company, and eventually become CEO of her own networking company, REO. Dianna is a former teacher who has become a certified balloon artist and owns her own company, Above the Rest Balloon and Event Designs. Karen Jernigan was a nationally certified sign language interpreter until she went to law school at the University of Tennessee. Now she represents clients on their claims for Social Security Disability benefits.
If, like these women, you’ve ever dreamed of charting a different course or want to hear about the courage it takes to set out on a new path, join us for this quarter’s salon.
