New leader for Chamberís womenís programs

Posted by: Bernie Dagenais on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 2:00:00 pm

I’m pleased to announce that Greater Philadelphia business leader Rose Ann Scanlon has been selected as part of a team to lead The Main Line Chamber of Commerce’s Society of Professional Women.

As our new SPW Facilitator, Rose Ann will collaborate with SPW Program Director Nicole Stephenson to create the future of Greater Philadelphia’s largest women’s empowerment and networking group. Outgoing SPW leader Eileen Connolly-Robbins, who resigned her post with the Chamber last year, continues to be involved in the transition.

An attorney who started her career at Stradley Ronon Stevens and Young, Rose Ann most recently held transformational executive leadership positions with AstraZeneca and Holy Redeemer Health System.

Long active in the community as a volunteer, she serves as the current Board Chair of Women’s Way, a groundbreaking nonprofit engaged in grant making, education and advocacy in support of local women and girls.

Rose Ann’s accomplishments as a leader and her volunteer focus on empowering women make her the ideal fit for SPW. Together, she and Nicole will ensure that SPW continues to set the standard for excellence in women’s leadership programming, both in our region and across the country.

The entire Main Line Chamber of Commerce staff and board will support our SPW leaders and SPW Advisory Council in expanding and evolving SPW programs: the sell-out Trademark Events, She-Suite Leadership Workshops, Lunch & Share educational events, Women Helping Women Mentoring and more.

By providing best-in-class leadership development programs for women, the Chamber proudly plays an important role in meeting the needs of our nearly 1,000 member companies. As SPW speakers have so often said, addressing inequalities that impede the elevation of women is not a “women’s issue.” All of us have a stake in removing barriers so that our companies and communities can benefit from the best available talent, regardless of gender.
