Cayman Islands Crisis Centre fundraising committee member Denise Gower explained the concept behind the event: “To honour International Women’s Month, we wanted to something particularly special, building upon our annual speaker series in which we hosted Leslie Morgan-Steiner in 2013 and Joshua Safran in 2014. Erin Brockovich is the perfect keynote speaker – she is charismatic, energetic and she can speak personally about overcoming challenges and about the power of a single individual to make positive change in society. All of these themes wind closely together and make the perfect fit for both the CICC and for our platinum sponsor Scotiabank”.

Sponsors of the event include Scotiabank and EY, as well as bronze sponsors Rawlinson Hunter, Baraud, Reliable Industries, Solomon Harris, Campbells, Aon and UBS.

Sloane Muldoon, Managing Director of Scotiabank, will be introducing Ms. Brockovich at the luncheon: “Scotiabank has a long history of supporting workplace diversity and inclusion and is delighted to support and encourage women in the local community to find their voice. Erin Brockovich is an inspiration to all of us and an excellent example of how one person can overcome considerable advertisty to make change,” she said.

The fundraiser luncheon will be held at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman from 12:00 – 3:00 Wednesday 25 March, followed by networking cocktails. Tickets are US$150 each and sponsorship opportunities are still available by emailing [email protected]
