It’s going to rain men at the Fair Media Council’s Women’s Empowerment Summit on Friday.
The Bethpage-based nonprofit media watchdog group plans to raffle off some of Long Island’s top male executives and CEOs, who will give winners a one-on-one mentoring session.
“The complaints I hear from women are that they don’t have access to the power base, which is men,” FMC Executive Director Jaci Clement said. “This is an opportunity for women to sit down face-to face [with male leaders] and have an informal talk.”
Some of the men include Michael Dowling, president & CEO of North Shore-LIJ Health System, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, Bethpage Federal Credit Union CEO Kirk Kordeleski and Long Island Press Publisher Jed Morey.
The summit will also have workshops for women in business, like Personal Branding, How to Network Like a Pro, and Power Interviewing Techniques, among others.
The FMC’s Women’s Empowerment Summit from 7:30 a.m.-noon Friday at Briarcliffe College in Bethpage.
