An excerpt from the article:
Malafi spoke at HIA-LI’s sixth annual women’s leadership breakfast, “Women Leading the Way: A Discussion with Women CEOs” on December 2, 2016, where she was joined by Dr. Christine Riordan, President of Adelphi University; Neela Mukherjee Lockel, CEO of American Red Cross on Long Island; Judith Heller, Assistant Vice President of Physician Recruitment at Northwell Health; and Karen Davis-Farage, Co-Owner and President of Pole Position Raceway. Domenique Camacho-Moran, Partner at Farrell Fritz, moderated the dynamic panel, drawing in the crowd as she weaved throughout the packed room of 200 attendees. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who was instrumental in creating the event in 2010, addressed the room via video message on the topic of women’s leadership.
Camacho-Moran reminded the crowd that although women have long played a significant role in the economy, they still are not proportionally represented in leadership roles and professional positions, and continue to earn less than men. The women on the panel “defied the odds” as they embarked on their unique career paths.
