Conversations with Women Making a Difference in Delaware

Conversations with Women Making a Difference in Delaware

Join us at the Delaware Art Museum on April 11 for the second in series of “Conversations with Women Making a Difference in Delaware: Claiming our Seat at the Table.”

Carol Arnott-Robbins, founder of NEWS4Women, will facilitate a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session. Topics will include career highlights, life stories, and hard-earned wisdom from these three influential women. The three April panelists include:

Michelle A. Taylor is President and Chief Executive Officer of United Way of Delaware. She works across all sectors of the community to include private, public, and corporate sectors — and particularly the communities that are being served — to improve conditions to strengthen Delaware. As a career non-profit professional, Michelle’s proven leadership brings a high level of business and management skills, and she is effective at generating resources and financial support for organizations. She is dedicated to shared and measurable goals for the common good: creating, resourcing, scaling, and leveraging strategies for large investment and impact. She is a board member of several professional organizations and agencies.

Renata B. Kowalczyk is the new Managing Director for Wilmington Renaissance Corporation. She has more than twenty years of experience in strategic partnership building, change management, operations, organizational learning and development, management consulting, and community and economic development. Prior to joining WRC, she was an Executive Director at JPMorgan Chase. In 1991, Renata came to the U.S. from then-communist Poland, two days after the collapse of the Berlin Wall. Since then she has lived and worked in New York City, Washington, DC, and the greater Seattle area. She is a Founder with the Delaware Fund for Women and serves on the Boards of Delaware Shakespeare and the Rodney Square Conservancy. She’s also active in the Rotary Club of Wilmington and is an Angel Investor with the national Pipeline Angels network.

Kyle Evans Gay, Esq. is an attorney at the law firm of Connolly Gallagher LLP. Her practice focuses on commercial litigation and government law.
