As President of TEMPO’s Foundation Board, I am honored to carry forward our mission of “supporting the professional goals of TEMPO members by awarding grants for educational programming that allows TEMPO Madison’s top executive women to thrive professionally.” Past presidents have also built a philanthropic legacy that champions promising young women in pursuit of their educational goals. I am inspired by the Foundation’s commitment to improve the lives of our future generation through the power of education.
These efforts can only continue with a collective effort – together, carrying the vision forward one small step at a time. In 2021, we celebrate a milestone anniversary! TEMPO Madison turns 40, which means by May 2020 we will have most of the heavy-lifting completed for planning the event. Our goal is to be inclusive and transparent, involving our members through meetings, focus group sessions, surveys, and informal conversations. The celebration will reflect our past achievements and position our future for greater advancement. Let’s bring in the 40th year of TEMPO Madison the way we know best by building and cultivating relationships and seizing opportunities – all with an innovative entrepreneurial spirit.
Looking toward the future,
Leslie M. Petty
TEMPO Madison Foundation Board
