DURHAM, NC – The Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce will host “Durham Women Take No Bull,” a half-day event for women on March 8 at the Carolina Theatre (309 W. Morgan Street) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Utilizing panel discussions, couch conversations and a luncheon keynote address, the event will help answer the question, “What’s wrong with being confident?”
“The story of Durham’s history from railroad and tobacco to research and technology is incomplete without the voice of the many women who have shaped Durham’s past and are continuing to build its future,” said Geoff Durham Chamber president. “This event brings together Durham’s women, from every industry and cluster to both inspire and inform each other through panel discussions and a keynote address.”
Event panelists include:
- Jes Averhart – Executive Director Leadership Triangle
- Jessica Brock – Managing Director, Longfellow Real Estate Partners
- Leigh Kathryn Bonner, Founder & CEO, Bee Downtown
- Brenda Howerton, Durham County Commissioner
- Laura Ritchie, Co-founder & Director, The Carrack
- Liz Rooks, Interim CEO, Research Triangle Park Foundation
- Carolyn Sparano, General Manager, Bronto Software
- Isa Watson, Founder and CEO, Envested
Durham’s first African-American female police chief Cerelyn “CJ” Davis will provide the luncheon keynote address. Chief Davis is a 30-year law enforcement veteran and became chief of police of the Durham Police Department on June 6, 2016. NOTE: The luncheon will take place just a short walk away at the Durham Armory, 220 Foster Street, Durham NC.
Durham Women Take No Bull is a partnership between the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce and Casey’s Company. This program takes a unique spin on confidence, using it to galvanize Durham’s women to take action and ‘drive it like they stole it!”
