In celebration of International Women’s Day, Price Simms Family Dealerships hosted more than 50 women for its first Price Simms Women’s Circle International Women’s Day Lunch on March 8.
“The Price Simms Women’s Circle consists of both men and women throughout all levels of our organization and across all 26 of our brands. It offers women a chance to develop leadership skills and make connections with senior leaders, ” said Savannah Simms, general manager of Polestar Marin. “We’re committed to growing a strong workforce of women leaders.”
The panel consisted of Stephanie Plante, president and CEO of CPi Developers; Felecia Gaston, CEO of Performing Stars of Marin; Lori Pearce, advertising manager of Marin Independent Journal; and Heather Laughlin, customer service market manager of Jaguar-Land Rover Marin.
“I think there are some key takeaways from this important conversation,” said Diana Kennedy, general manager of Volvo Marin and president of the Price Simms Women’s Circle. Kennedy was moderator of the panel. “Interrupt, support, be curious, be courageous, listen more and welcome change. Most importantly, there are no limits.”
Paige Ziegler, marketing director of Volvo Marin and Marin Luxury Cars and organizer of the event, said, “I wanted to put together a dynamic panel of women from different industries, backgrounds and perspectives in Marin County. It’s vital to be able to come together and share challenges, successes and wisdom.”
