The 100 Wise Women series brings successful women leaders – Wise Women – together with emerging women leaders to share perspectives on themes presented by distinguished keynote speakers. Designed to increase the base of Louisville’s qualified, connected women leaders, more than 700 women attended the forums in 2011 and every event has sold out since the series started in 2007.
Proceeds from 100 Wise Women go to the Joan Riehm Women’s Leadership Fund, created to allow women to participate in Leadership Louisville Center programs. Since the scholarship fund was created in 2007, 62 women have received scholarships totaling more than $67,000.
