“At Toyota, we understand the importance of quality educational and leadership opportunities for women in our community. Having supported our own conference for over 12 years, we realized the impact of these types of opportunities not only for educational purposes, but for networking as well. This past year, Toyota made the decision to begin supporting SOAR’s Young Women Lead program which provides these types of educational opportunities for high school girls. However, we also wanted to continue our involvement and support of adult women. We knew that Women Leading Kentucky was a quality organization providing quality leadership programming to women through its roundtable luncheons and annual conference. Toyota was very happy to be able to sponsor Women Leading Kentucky last year and very pleased to be a part of this exciting organization again this year. We encourage you to take advantage of the programs Women Leading Kentucky provides throughout the year.” – Nila Wells, Community Relations Specialist, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc.
“I have enjoyed the networking and collegiality of working with a diverse group of business women and leaders through my association with Women Leading Kentucky. Through the events sponsored by the organization, I have been able to offer the opportunity for networking and the development of business relationships to many of the women of Central Baptist Hospital (CBH). Women Leading Kentucky’s support of scholarships for women is a primary strategic priority and is always a motivating factor for me and CBH to continue our financial and personal support. Association with Women Leading Kentucky has been good for the promotion and visibility of CBH services as we try to meet the healthcare needs of the people of Lexington and Central and Southeastern Kentucky.” – Karen Hill, VP of Nursing and COO, Baptist Health

It has been an honor here at WKYT serving as a Media Sponsor for Women Leading Kentucky for its Roundtable Luncheons and annual Conference year after year.

“Attending Women Leading KY, and having the opportunity to bring other amazing women to the luncheons and conferences, over the past 12 years has been pretty remarkable! Not only are the programs fantastic, and the door prizes are treasures I always hope to win, but the chance to build relationships with clients and business professionals, who also become friends, is invaluable!
We are all time-crunched and pulled in many directions; however, WLKY offers us the chance to come together in a supportive environment, with a strong mission that is inclusive and unique. From the roundtables, to the conference, to the workshops, to the networking, I have had friends whom I have brought with me say that the support and warmth received at WLKY is like nothing they’ve experienced before. I’m so proud to be a part of this organization and encourage the advancement, whether it is to foster education for young women, create networking prospects, or learn new ‘nuggets of wisdom’ from another leader in our community.” – Robin Fleischer, Robin S.
