A Queens faculty member and an alumna will participate in a mentorship program which unites businesswoman from Carolinas and around the world. From May 8-12, Bank of America and Vital Voices will lead a Global Ambassadors Program that will include Dr. Dawn Chanland, associate professor of management in the Queens McColl School of Business, and Moira Quinn '77, chief operating officer for Charlotte Center City Partners. This will be the first time that the program is held in the United States, and it will be in Charlotte.

According to a joint press release issued by Bank of America and Vital Voices, the week-long mentorship initiative "will bring together women leaders of small businesses and social enterprise from the Carolinas and around the world for mentoring and workshops focused on building organizational management, financial acumen and leadership skills."

Quinn will work alongside Juna Mathema, managing director and co-founder of Blitz Media P. Ltd., based on Kathmandu, Nepal. Quinn, who was named one of Mecklenburg County's 50 Most Influential Women and recipient of the Life in Charlotte "Media Professional of the Year" Award, will mentor Mathema in media business. Mathema's company is recognized as a top research agency in Nepal, and her research has delved into health, women's rights, education, water and politics.

Dr. Chanland will mentor Patience Magodo, managing consultant for Tafadzwa Ne Chiedza Development Trust, from Harare, Zimbabwe. Chanland will provide insight into executive leadership, career development and coaching experience to her mentee. Magodo was awarded The Brilliant Entrepreneur Certificate by the Dutch Embassy in Harare in 2015.
