100 Wise Women Event

Tierra Kavanaugh Turner, founder and chief executive officer for TKT & Associates, was the keynote speaker at the sold-out 100 Wise Women event, which was held at The Olmsted on June 13.

Over 200 established and emerging women leaders listened to Turner speak about her career in the public and private sectors, in the area of minority empowerment. Turner shared her leadership story, including how she’s met challenges and how she’s maintained a strong commitment to family throughout her professional career.

The 100 Wise Women series, presented by the Leadership Louisville Center, Today’s Woman magazine and Ernst & Young, is designed to increase the base of Louisville’s qualified, connected women leaders. The unique and lively forum connects emerging women leaders with experienced, successful women during table discussions following a keynote address each year. Every event has sold out since the series began in 2007. Proceeds from 100 Wise Women go to the Joan Riehm Women’s Leadership Fund.
