Supporting and Honoring Women in Business is Essential

by | Oct 14, 2020 | Community | 0 comments

Northeast Delta Dental recently sponsored the 2020 Mainebiz Women to Watch virtual reception. We support Mainebiz because it’s critical to recognize women in leadership whose daily work sustains their organizations and more importantly, Maine’s economy. More than 190 executives joined the virtual forum and subscribers to Mainebiz received the printed and digital editions, featuring the honorees!

We believe that a busy schedule, or career, shouldn’t get in the way of a healthy smile. One more reason we support Mainebiz is because they support working professionals across a variety of industries like Hospitality, Healthcare, Finance, and the Startup Sector. Not only is Mainebiz recognizing the achievements of women business leaders but they are spearheading important awards initiatives and giving a voice to the news across the state, news that may save a life or ensure better healthcare. 

We congratulate Angela Okafor, Attorney, entrepreneur, member of the Bangor City Council; Elizabeth McLellan, Founder and president, Partners for World Health; Erin Flett, Owner, Erin Flett Textiles & Home; Heidi Neal, Owner, Loyal Biscuit Co.; and Marcia Minter, Co-founder and executive director, Indigo Arts Alliance.

I remain touched by Minter’s words: “Thank you for seeing me; one of the biggest challenges faced by Black women in business is invisibility. It means something when people see you. It is transformative to know you make a difference.” 
To learn more, here’s a link to a presentation highlighting honorees:
