Chase is the presenting sponsor of 100 Wise Women

There’s a reason 100 Wise Women networking events sell out year after year. Louisville area women know it’s the best, easiest, and most impactful way to gain inspiration and expand your circle of career connections. This year we need it more than ever! Whether we are sitting together at a table or in a virtual setting – you’ll hear remarkable leadership journeys and enjoy facilitated small group conversations.

At every 100 Wise Women event, you have an opportunity to:

  • Connect with distinguished women from all career stages and backgrounds.
  • Learn by exchanging ideas, sharing concerns, and discovering expertise from the women you might not otherwise meet.
  • Grow as you strengthen your leadership capacity and get empowered.
