Conversations with Women Making a Difference in Delaware
Oct 10 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us at the Delaware Art Museum on October 10 for the third 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 evening will also include a short preview of an upcoming exhibit at the Art Museum, Posing Beauty in African American Culture , which opens on October 19. The three October panelists include:

Doneene Keemer Damon is the president of Richards Layton & Finger (RLF), Delaware’s largest law firm. She is the first African American woman to be elected president of a major Delaware law firm, and was the first African American to make partner at RLF. Doneene co-chairs the firm’s Business Department and chairs the Corporate Trust and Agency Services Group. Her practice focuses primarily on formation and operational issues relating to Delaware statutory and common law trusts in all types of commercial and business transactions, representing issuers, underwriters, investors, and trustees. In addition, she represents banks and trust companies in connection with their trust and agency services under Delaware and New York law in various commercial transactions, including their roles as trustee, collateral agent, custodian, master servicer, depository agent, and exchange agent. Doneene is the Current Chair of Christiana Care Health System Board of Directors and is also a Board Member of the Delaware Prosperity Partnership. She was recently featured in an article in Super Lawyers and was honored as one of Savoy magazine’s Most Influential Black Lawyers.

Amira Idris Radović is the CEO & Founder of TheraV, a startup company developing wearable devices for nerve pain. She has a master’s degree in entrepreneurship and design from the University of Delaware, and a bachelor’s degree from UD in biomedical engineering, biomechanical engineering and bioelectrical engineering. Amira was also a full scholarship student-athlete for UD’s Women’s Track and Field Division 1 team and holds the UD record in the long and triple jump. Amira was born in Nigeria and immigrated to the USA with her family at the age of nine. She developed the TheraV ELIX, a patent pending drug-free wearable device that uses vibration therapy to help amputees manage phantom limb pain. Amira is a proud fellow of VentureWell, Horn Entrepreneurship, Halcyon Incubator, NextFab Accelerator, and the National Science Foundation I-Corps.

Velma P. Scantlebury, M.D., FACS Dr. Scantlebury is the first African American woman in the field of transplantation surgery. She is Associate Director of the Kidney Transplant Program at Christiana Care Health System, as well as the Director of Outpatient Clinics for kidney transplant services. She was voted Best Doctor in America and a Top Doctor by Philadelphia Magazine from 2014 to 2018. She also received the National Kidney Foundation’s Gift of Life Award for her work in kidney transplantation and minorities. Dr. Scantlebury is a member of numerous professional societies including the American Society of Transplantation, the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Black Academic Surgeons, and the Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation. She is a member of the Wilmington Chapter of the Links, Inc. and an Honorary Member of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc.
