Description

Join the Women's Endowment Fund for our "For Women, Forever" annual dinner as we celebrate uplifting women and girls in our community. This year's keynote speaker is Jill Penrose, chief people & administrative officer at The J.M. Smucker Company.

For the past 15 years, Jill Penrose has held numerous leadership positions within The J.M. Smucker Company, including roles in corporate strategy, human resources and communications. In her current role as the organization’s chief people and administrative officer, she leads the evolution and continued integration of the company's administrative functions, including human resources, information services, corporate communications, government relations, corporate sustainability, charitable giving, and corporate services. This involves a passionate focus on fostering the company’s people-centric culture. 

During the event, the Women's Endowment Fund will also honor Sylvia Trundle with the 2020 Judith A. Read Tribute Award for Service & Advocacy for Women.

Throughout her 35-year career, Sylvia served in various law enforcement positions within Greater Akron, including Akron Police Department's Captain of Patrol Subdivision, which was her final role before retirement. As a professional, she shattered ceilings of gender inequality by becoming the first full-time female police officer for Fairlawn Police Department and the first female spokesperson for Akron Police Department. Since her retirement, Sylvia has been at the forefront of improving Akron's community, dedicating much of her efforts for the betterment of women and girls.

This event has sold out the last four years, so reserve your seats now by becoming a sponsor. General admission tickets will go on sale in November.
