    Charity focus: Women in Reinsurance will host a panel discussion on philanthropy

Women in Reinsurance and the Under-40s in Philanthropy group, will host a panel discussion this month to educate young professionals about the roles they can play in Bermuda’s third sector, including serving on charitable boards.

The lunchtime panel will be moderated by Danielle Riviere, executive director of the Centre on Philanthropy.

“The non-profit sector, like so many other sectors around the world, is facing a huge transition as the baby-boomer generation begins to retire. We wanted to engage the next generation of potential leaders and we’re excited to tell professionals in Bermuda about the many opportunities to join and support the non-profit sector,” Ms Riviere said.

The four panellists are:

• Samantha Nearon, training and education co-ordinator, Centre on Philanthropy and board chairwoman, Under-40s in Philanthropy

• Keri Pacheco, programme co-ordinator, Raleigh Bermuda and partnerships/collaboration manager, Under-40s in Philanthropy

• Steve Woodward, managing director, KPMG, board chairman, corporate social responsibility committee, KPMG.

• Dantae Williams, associate in litigation and advice team, Marshall Diel & Myers Ltd, board chairwoman, Alpha Beautillion Scholarship and Mentor Programme.

Rachael Afford, head of WiRe’s events committee, said: “WiRe strives to offer events to support the professional development of our members. This panel discussion offers a great follow up to last year’s event, ‘Breaking Board — Understanding the Role of a Director and How You Can Qualify’.

“Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the Centre on Philanthropy’s board service training course and will also find out how to get involved at all levels with Bermuda’s more than 400 charities.”

The panel session is open to all female and male professionals and there is no charge to attend. It is scheduled to take place at Axa XL on April 16 from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.

Space is limited so we kindly request those interested in attending to reply using the following link: www.wirebermuda.com/rsvp-wire-3
