HOW LET HER SPEAK STARTED
In 2017, I had an idea for an event that brought together groups of amazing women across the greater Knoxville, TN area to come to the table, to share their stories, and to have a conversation about their vision for the future of supporting women in business within the community. Over the course of 6 months, I interviewed over 25 businesswomen asking them about frustrations they had and topics they wanted to discuss.
Out of inspiration from these incredible women came the Let Her Speak Women’s Summit. Thanks to the huge support I received from the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center, I along with my team have been able to make this dream a reality. Not only has every event since March 2018 been met with overwhelming support, but our community continues to grow as we expand our partnerships outside East Tennessee.
Today, the vision for Let Her Speak includes not only creating community through our curated-events, but also conducting female-focused research and developing programs to help women see the leaders within themselves. We are bringing more visibility, support, resources, and opportunities to ALL women leaders, one-woman-at-a-time.
