More than 80 Stonehill alumnae recently devoted a Saturday morning to exploring workplaces that work for women. A conversation between College trustee and Stonehill parent, Sheri McCoy, former CEO of Avon Products, Inc. and educator Allyson Manchester ’11 set the stage for a lively, informative Summit with insights on women and issues ranging from leadership to networking to mentorship.
A scientist and beauty industry leader, McCoy discussed making career changes, the importance of vision and purpose, building networks, being resilient, balancing career and family, and developing inner-confidence.
“The spirit of collaboration combined with so many powerful conversations really energized the Summit. Alumnae, and indeed alumni, worked to help each other, trading experiences and providing insight on trends or opportunities. We are already looking at the calendar for next year, said Assistant Director of Alumni Affairs," Lauren O’Halloran ’13.
