During March, in honor of Women’s History month, GLI is highlighting women led businesses in Greater Louisville and the #GreatLouisvilleLeaders who are behind some of our most successful and influential companies.

Where better to start than with our own entirely female Leadership team here at GLI, led by President and CEO, Sarah Davasher-Wisdom.
