Women Own the Room: Wyndham Championship Executive Women’s Day Sold Out; Tournament Offering FREE Live Stream

GREENSBORO, N.C. – “Women Own the Room,” the Wyndham Championship’s sold-out Executive Women’s Day set for Tuesday, Aug. 2, will feature Cone Health CEO, Dr. Mary Jo Cagle and the senior leadership team representing the Greensboro healthcare provider, the tournament announced today. The 83rd annual Wyndham Championship is next week at Sedgefield Country Club.

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Checchio will open the event by introducing Cagle as the event’s keynote speaker. The first female CEO in Cone Health history, Cagle will discuss the power of partnerships, the importance of promoting diversity and the importance of giving back in her keynote address.

After lunch, Cagle and her leadership team will participate in a panel discussion, moderated by Checchio, regarding Cone Health’s vision for the community and why having women in top positions is so important for these times. Those from Cone Health participating in the panel discussion are:

Mary Jo Cagle, MD, Chief Executive Officer
Mandy Eaton, Chief Operating Officer
Michelle Adamolekun, Chief People and Culture Officer
Valerie Leschber, MD, System-Wide Chief Medical Officer
Mae Douglas, Chair, Cone Health Board of Trustees

“Women are a little more than half of our population and no one can afford to lose out on half the brain power out there,” points out Cagle. “That’s why it’s vital to remove barriers and create opportunities for women leaders. And that’s why six of the 11 most-senior executives at Cone Health are women.”

“Executive Women’s Day has come a long way since we began hosting it in 2013,” executive director Mark Brazil said. “This event is an opportunity for women to come to the Wyndham Championship for a day of networking and corporate dialogue, and this year’s ‘Women Own the Room’ theme will really resonate with those who attend in person as well as those joining the live stream. We’re thrilled with the significant role Dr. Cagle and her team from Cone Health are playing in this year’s event, and we thank Cone Health for their partnership. I think this year’s event will be our best yet.”

The event will conclude with a networking opportunity allowing event guests to mingle with Cone Health leadership and learn more about the important topics of the day. Because Executive Women’s Day is sold out, the Wyndham Championship will offer a complimentary live stream so those unable to attend can enjoy this important presentation. Pre-registration is required to join “Women Own the Room” via the free Zoom live stream. To register, please click here: https://bit.ly/3yLyRHF
