This year’s participants included:

  • Kelli Ballard, EPB

  • Clare Conway, Girls Inc.
  • Kelly Drake, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
  • Mary Edwards, Chambliss Center for Children

“Chattanooga is a richer community because of the value these women provide and the mentorship they plan to provide going forward,” says Stefanie Mansueto, a relationship executive at JP Morgan Chase Commercial Banking, a member of CWLI’s board of directors and chair of the CWLI Women Mentoring Women Committee.

Women Mentoring Women will be rebranded in 2019 as “Women 2 Watch” and will last two semesters – one for training and one for application.
