The event features a panel discussion with Debra Campbell, City Manager of Asheville, Avril Pinder, Buncombe County Manager, and Jaime Laughter, Transylvania County Manager. The panelists will discuss issues they see impacting women in our region now and going forward with an emphasis on barriers to women's participation and county/city agenda items which address these issues. Topics to be discussed might include:

  • Healthcare
  • Aging Population

Moderated by Dr. Lyndi Hewitt of UNCA, this discussion will provide insight into what changes the panelists would implement to make a difference in the lives of women in Western North Carolina.
