Hardy: Human Collateral, Strong Networks Can Propel Women to Success

The ‘good old boys’ club is the fabric of the business community.

Carolyn Hardy knew she couldn’t fight it, so she made it a point to play the same game by using relationships as investments that led to opportunities in a world where most doors are closed to women.

Hardy’s Advice For Women in Business

Carolyn Hardy has been places a woman hadn’t been before in the Memphis business world.

Throughout her career at J.M. Smucker Co., Honeywell-POMS Corp., Coors Brewing Co. and her own ventures with Hardy Bottling Co. and Henderson Transloading, Hardy has made it a point to be confident with herself and make everyone else comfortable with having a woman at the boardroom table. Under her new role as chairman of the Greater Memphis Chamber, she’s advocating for greater inclusion of minority- and women-owned businesses in the private sector.

Trailblazer

Carolyn Chism Hardy is a trailblazer, a success story, an advocate for the poor and middle class, and now she’s one of the most influential people in the private sector.
