Sharon Kelly Hake cofounded Great Dames a decade ago with a goal to uplift women as leaders through mentorships and peer support. Women have always been the focus of the organization, but men have long joined in as mentors and supporters.
On Oct. 21, for the first time, three male allies will join a Great Dames panel titled “How Men Can Be Strong Allies for Women” at its Powerful Conversations event at Harry’s Savoy Grill in Wilmington.
Panelists will include:
- Fred Dawson, a wealth advisor focused on women
- Allison Garrett, founder of The Prison Break Success System
- Maria Hess, strategic and executive communications expert
- Sarah Kenney-Cruz, communications and PR manager at Delaware Prosperity Partnership
- Pedro Moore, entrepreneur venture advisor to Daymond John of “Shark Tank”
- Mac Nagaswami Macleod, cofounder and CEO Carvertise
“Numerous studies show that companies thrive when management teams embrace a balance in the number of men and women,” says Hake. “We know that many men support the advancement of women and people of color, while others lack either the skill or interest to do so. This is a conversation that needs to happen and we’re expecting candid and impactful dialogue.”
Tickets are $50 ($40 for Great Dames members). Click here to register.
