Penn Mutual’s Board is also 40% female. One of those female Board members is Charisse Lillie who will interview Eileen about her journey and share insights from her own esteemed career. Charisse was among the first generation of students to attend an integrated school in Houston, Texas in the 60’s and became acutely aware of the impact attorneys were having on dismantling segregation laws. She received her B.A. from Wesleyan University, her J.D. from Temple Law School and her LL.M. from Yale. She is a successful, award-winning attorney and business executive having transitioned from a successful legal career to Comcast as an HR executive and then President of its Foundation.
