"One thing that I have struggled with is when you are "in charge," it is very difficult to have friendships with people in the workplace, as at some point it seems you always need to reprimand, counsel or otherwise tick off someone whom you viewed as a "friend." For me, the organization offers the opportunity to meet other women who offer the possibility of friendship or "aquaintanceship" that is not in the realm of the workplace. Love the brain power, enthusiasm, forthrightness, and work ethic of those whom I have encountered in my short term with CWLI."— –Betsy McCright, Chattanooga Housing Authority
"I have always loved being around powerful women because it just makes me feel good. Whenever I come out of a CWLI meeting I always feel empowered myself and proud to be a professional woman!!"— -Christy Viens, LBMC
