We are “women leaders building women leaders.”  The East Tennessee Women’s Leadership Council organizes the Summit.  The Council is a team of volunteers who share a common interest in improving the lives of women in East Tennessee.  The women come from diverse backgrounds and industries, including counseling, chemistry, finance, fundraising, personnel staffing, manufacturing, consumer science,  politics, and public relations.  These diverse backgrounds and experiences blend together to create a common understanding of what still needs to be done to help East Tennessee women Live. Learn. Lead. Our Mission: To promote and provide leadership training and skill development to build women leaders across East Tennessee.
