Oprah Winfrey to Address Women Who Lead Luncheon
Local Real Estate CEO Sponsors UNCF Event Named for Dr. Maya Angelou
By: Keaton Barrow Realty
Oprah was a natural choice to provide continuing motivation to this group of accomplished business and community leaders. During the 17th anniversary of the beloved Charlotte summer tradition, women who have garnered positive recognition locally, statewide and nationally will be honored. This year's Maya Angelou Women Who Lead honorees are Tiffany Eubanks-Saunders with Bank of America, Madelyn L. Caple of Wells Fargo; the Young Leader Honoree is Tish Guerin of the Carolina Panthers and owner of Transitions Management Group; and the Elizabeth Ross Dargan Lifetime Achievement Award will be given to Joan H. Zimmerman, CEO, Southern Shows.
For Keaton-Barrow, who is well known as both a philanthropist and successful entrepreneur, the chance to support this luncheon brought back some treasured memories. "One of the most profound things I have had the opportunity to experience in my life was an event in Atlanta where Maya Angelou was the keynote speaker," Keaton-Barrow recalls. "When she finished, we all got to our feet, and believe it not, out from behind the stage came Coretta Scott King. I got to see Maya Angelou and Coretta Scott King on the same stage. That's truly Women Who Lead."
The event is organized by another woman who leads, UNCF Area Development Director Tiffany Lynn Jones. "Tiffany has done an amazing job. And the fact that this event supports UNCF aligns with my ongoing passion to promote education," Keaton-Barrow notes.
Saturday's event is sold out. More details are available to the media.
