The Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce’s upcoming Women’s Roundtable will feature guest speaker Dr. Emilie Lonardi, Superintendent of the Downingtown Area School District, as she discusses the joys – and challenges – of being a female CEO.
The presentation – entitled “Navigating as a Female CEO” – is set to take place via Zoom on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 5:30 PM.
GWCC’s Women’s Roundtable, sponsored by Miles Financial Management, Inc., is a social and educational discussion series for professional women to gather and connect while learning from the region’s most poignant female speakers in an intimate setting.
Dr. Lonardi will discuss:
- gender disparity among superintendents, despite teaching being a predominantly female industry
- stereotypes in the daily work of school superintendents
- micro-inequities she has faced and continues to face in her position
“In a world where women only hold 25 percent of C-suite positions, we are excited to present such a powerful discussion to encourage women of all ages and say ‘it can be done,’” said Melissa Hawes, founder of Miles Financial Management. “We are excited to sponsor such a great and well-rounded event like the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Roundtable series.”
