On May 24 at the Memphis Botanic Garden, MBJ held an event honoring this year’s Super Women in Business. If we could bottle the energy that evening, there is nothing we couldn’t achieve: world peace, houses on Mars, the end of world hunger. The room absolutely hummed from this collection of exceptional women. There was joy, surely, and thankfulness.
But, more than that, it spoke of potential — of these women leading the way with persistence and engagement, with sheer doggedness. What could these women do? What could they not do? Many have forged their own paths. Others had an audacious vision and saw it through. These women are leaders — and we’d be wise to follow.
