Carolyn Tanner Irish’s leadership as the 10th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Utah, the first female leader of a major denomination in the state, and her role as Chair for the Board of Directors for the O.C. Tanner Company, have provided different but philosophically consistent outlets for her greatest passion: championing people.
As a spiritual leader she counsels, advices and heals. As a business leader her priorities remain the same. A pioneer among pioneers; she reaches out to the greater community with a sense of purpose, providing physical, artistic and intellectual beauty. Her sense of responsibility in creating stable jobs and lives has affected untold thousands in the state. Indeed, her actions foster the very essence of the word community.
Carolyn’s ability to reach out and build a sense of ones between the religious and secular, commerce and community, makes her a Giant in our City.
