The Montgomery County Foundation welcomed three nationally acclaimed speakers who discussed how women leaders can navigate changes in their personal and professional lives during Women and Leadership Forum 2019 held at the Presidential in East Norriton on December 3.
Sheryl Williams, founder of SheWillLead, Lisa Lord of Lisa Lord Consulting, and Cheryl Rice, founder of the You Matter Marathon movement all tackled the program’s main theme, “Taking Charge of Change.”
“This Forum provides a unique opportunity for attendees to learn important strategies for navigating change so that they can thrive, lead and succeed,” said Virginia Frantz, President and CEO of The Montgomery County Foundation.
The Foundation also presented its prestigious “Woman of Distinction” award to Tamala Edwards, co-anchor of Action News Mornings at channel 6ABC.
Edwards was recognized not just for leadership in her field, but also for her dedication to serving and improving the community.
Meanwhile, the Foundation’s “Critical Impact Award” was presented to Nanette and Kary LaFors. The pair were honored for their efforts in alleviating food insecurity in Montgomery County through Advocates Against Hunger and working with Living Waters for the World to bring clean water to developing areas worldwide.
