Carol Arnott-Robbins, founder of NEWS4Women, will facilitate a panel discussion with Doneene Damon, Dr. Velma Scantlebury, and Amira Idris Radović, followed by a Q & A session. Topics will include career highlights, life stories, and hard-earned wisdom from these three influential women. (See Bios below).
The evening will also include a short preview of an upcoming exhibit at the Delaware Art Museum, Posing Beauty in African American Culture , which opens on October 19.
Early-bird tickets are $35 until October 4, when the ticket price will be raised to $40. Tickets will also be sold at the door. All proceeds benefit the Delaware Art Museum. Networking and refreshments are included. (networking will be from 5:30-6:00; the program will start just after 6:00). Register online at this link.
The event is jointly sponsored by Blue Blaze Associates and  NEWS4Women.
This is the last event in this panel series for 2019. Dates for Conversations with Women Making a Difference in Delaware in 2020 will be announced soon.
This series aligns with the Museum’s new strategic direction, which focuses on becoming a more inclusive, relevant community resource. Their goal is to become a space where people can come together on equal terms to engage in cultural and civic discourse. Learn more at
