Join us for an evening with Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. Secretary Sanders will briefly highlight her contributions to the economy, community, and workforce development in eastern North Carolina. A moderated discussion and Q&A will follow. The evening will conclude with a reception for the Secretary and attendees. This event is free and open to the public.
Secretary Sanders is a native North Carolinian from Belhaven. She was appointed by Governor Cooper to lead the NC Department of Commerce in 2021, after previously serving as Administration Secretary. Her bold and purposeful leadership aims to ensure North Carolina’s economy is one that works for all people of this state.
As the mother to twin daughters, Secretary Sanders is passionate about improving the status of women in our state. “Improving the status of women in North Carolina is not just a women’s issue – it is a family, poverty, and economic issue.”
Please join us in welcoming Secretary Sanders to the North Carolina History Center on March 27th, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
