In my role as Director of the Salt Lake Chamber Women’s Business Center, I have the opportunity to be a part of many wonderful events- most of them are inspiring but some are life changing. One such inspiring event took place recently when the Salt Lake Chamber honored Bishop Carolyn Tanner Irish as a Giant In Our City. Bishop Irish is the 30th person honored by the Chamber Board of Governors as A Giant In Our City, and she is the first woman. Yayy!
The Giant in Our City is the most prestigious business award given in Utah for their success as business leaders and for their contributions to the community. Previous honorees who have been named as A Giant In Our City include Spencer Eccles, President Gordon B. Hinckley, Jon M. Huntsman, James LeVoy Sorenson, Larry H. Miller, William H. Nelson, Ellis Ivory and Roger Boyer.
As the chair of the board of directors at O.C. Tanner, Bishop Irish has overseen a remarkable business; as the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Utah she has served as a spiritual leader and greatly enhanced our community.
It was a wonderful event honoring a wonderful person! Congratulations Bishop Irish!
