Bert HarperAfter three years as CEO of Women's Inter-Cultural Exchange, Roberta "Bert" Harper will retire effective July 31, 2017.  Bert became involved in WIE in 2012 and has served as Board member, Board Chair and CEO.

Bert came to WIE after retiring from Bank of America as Senior Vice President.  During her tenure with WIE, Bert implemented policies and procedures which dramatically improved the operation and efficiencies of the organization including the development of WIE's 5-Year Strategy; improved the visibility of WIE within the Greater Charlotte community and strenthened the organization's programs.  She has been a mentor to students in the Mentoring Across Difference (MAD) program since she joined WIE.  In addition, Bert was largely responsible for the success of our 10th Anniversary Celebration in 2016 as well as the 5-Part Charlotte Wake-Up Series held early this year.

"Bert has played a critical role in the development and success of WIE and has made many significant contributions", says Founding CEO and Vision Keeper, Stephanie Counts.  "In addition to the growth of our programs, Bert was instrumental in WIE's selection by the Duke Interdisciplinary Social Innovators program  (DISI) for an impact evaluation after 10 years".

THANKS BERT for all you've done in helping WIE "Build Bridges Across Race and Culture".
