Executive Women International® (EWI) addresses the business professional's quest for personal achievement and drive for professional development. EWI is unique among the myriad of associations in that the company, or firm, holds 
the membership, not the individual.

EWI offers many benefits to both the individual representative and the firm. Representatives who participate in EWI have access to a variety of events and programs. Their companies benefit through the professional connections and the recognition received as business leaders locally and internationally.

We focus on Connections, Careers and Community. 

  • Connections  - Promoting member firms and its representatives.  We believe that connecting is about the dynamic evolving relationship linking our Chapters, our administrative team, our members and the larger communities we live and work in.

  • Careers - Enhancing personal and professional development through learning programs and EWI's Academy of Leadership

  • Community - Encouraging involvement by donating time and resources to improve lives through scholarship programs, literacy initiatives and other community programs.

The Chattanooga Chapter meets monthly; typically the second Tuesday evening.

We are also honoring our Chattanooga Chapter’s 31 years of service.  We recognize and appreciate the changing roles of women in business and the diverse careers held by our representatives to promote Community, Careers and Connections.

Christy Gillenwater, President and CEO of the Chattanooga Chamber is our speaker.  I’m so excited to learn her outlook of our growing community.

Have you made your reservation yet?  Please plan to attend this meeting to honor our Executive’s and to thank them for the support they give to EWI of Chattanooga.  This is the only lunch meeting we have and we will have the Walden Club’s fabulous lunch buffet.
