Chamber leader lauds progress of women in Nashville’s economy

Janet Miller, Chief Economic Development Officer for the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, spoke at Wednesday’s Cable luncheon about the great strides women have made, and will continue to make, in the Nashville business community. She related that when she started her career in the 1970s,  she was  referred to as “the skirt”; now there are nine women on the chamber’s Board of Directors, and the top five women-owned businesses in Nashville generated a combined 2012 revenue of nearly $682 million.
