Media Created Business Stories and Exposure – 2021

The Nashville Business Journal published an article regarding Table member Sunny Bray:

I want to help transform the Nashville community into a more diverse environment through collaborative efforts between the companies, nonprofits, community leaders and others all coming together to impact change. 

It’s all about being intentional.  There are some great organizations that are taking steps toward the change we all want to see.

The Table, an organization that I’m a part of with Kate Wood and Lee Molette, is one of them.  I’ve always had informal mentors throughout my career, but now I have a very formal, professional mentor that has done what I want to do, and that’s Beth Chase.  I don’t know if I would have that opportunity or if we would’ve crossed paths had it not been for The Table.

So, we need more organizations and people who are willing to help others while creating opportunities and connections that will ultimately improve the business community and the city of Nashville as a whole.
