The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

TV pro­ducer and pre­sen­ter Delia Dolor is one of 13 women recog­nised by Women on the Cross­roads as part of their ‘Awe­some You’ an­niver­sary din­ner which takes place an­nu­ally in the UK dur­ing In­ter­na­tional Women’s month.

Women on the Cross­roads (WOTC) is an on­line web­site which helps women to connect, net­work and com­mu­ni­cate their needs ef­fec­tively. WOTC will be launch­ing the newly founded Women on the Cross­roads Men­tor­ing pro­gramme where at­ten­dees will be able to reg­is­ter as Mentees and Men­tors – each one will in­spire the other.

WOTC was formed by mag­a­zine edi­tor Sherry Ann Dixon to in­spire, en­cour­age and mo­ti­vate women of all ages. “I want to recog­nise women who of­ten re­main in­vis­i­ble de­spite the fact that many have touched the glass ceil­ing in high pro­file or­gan­i­sa­tions. Many women are CEOs of ma­jor com­pa­nies yet many in their com­mu­nity do not know of th­ese high pro­file women: sur­geons, doc­tors, uni­ver­sity lec­tur­ers, Mem­bers of Par­lia­ment, au­thors, pro­duc­ers and life coaches. I want to cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of women and have cho­sen 13 In­spir­ers who will all host in­di­vid­ual ta­bles, en­cour­ag­ing the women at­tend­ing to move for­ward with their dreams, de­spite ob­sta­cles in their per­sonal lives, past is­sues from child­hood which of­ten hold them back.” Ms Dixon says Ms Dolor was se­lected be­cause she has al­ways en­cour­aged oth­ers to try some­thing dif­fer­ent in or­der to be­come bet­ter in­di­vid­u­als.“I have al­ways seen her in­vest­ing in her­self, rais­ing the bar and try­ing to make a dif­fer­ence whether it’s from ra­dio, tele­vi­sion or an ed­i­to­rial point of view.”

WOTC’s third an­niver­sary din­ner ‘Awe­some You’ on Sun­day 29 March 2015 at the

Hol­i­day Inn, Blooms­bury, Co­ram Street, Lon­don will in­clude a cham­pagne re­cep­tion, African and Caribbean din­ner, fash­ion show by top class de­sign­ers, and en­ter­tain­ment and mo­ti­va­tional speeches from in­dus­try in­spir­ers.

In­spir­ers on the night in­clude,Leah Charles – pre­sen­ter and TV pro­ducer; Saun­dra Glenn – founder and direc­tor of Cesty Val As­so­ciates, an event com­pany which ma­jors in mo­tor­sport; designer Yemi of Kosi­bah Cre­ations; Eryca Free­man­tle – in­spi­ra­tional speaker and pre­sen­ter on Mo­ments in Nige­ria; So­nia Brown MBE – Founder of Na­tional Black Women’s Net­work and Lets Talk Busi­ness Net­work­ing Fo­rum.

WOTC will also be hon­our­ing Irene Sin­clair from Guyana, who is now 106 years old. Irene be­came a model for the Dove World­wide Cam­paign at the age of 96. Said Ms Dixon: “The point be­ing that you can do what­ever you want to do de­spite your age!”
