At 6 p.m., the event transitions into an elegant dinner.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will be dedicated to Let Her Speak in support of its mission to elevate all women’s voices, to facilitate deeper conversations, to inspire lasting change in our communities, and to build a stronger support system for more women to lead.

“Get ready to delve into a world of inspiration and exploration like never before seen in Knoxville,” says Malhotra.
