Detroit News: Gleaners Event Inspires, Empowers Women

Detroit — Debra Guido-Allen said she thinks the current era of women in leadership roles isn’t going to end anytime soon.

“I think it’ll last a long time. And I think it won’t stop until we end up in a place where there’s gender equity and inclusion of everyone across the board,” said Guido-Allen, who is chief operating officer for Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak.

“I hope it inspires young women and girls to reach for the sky. I hope they know they can do whatever they put their minds to and that nothing should stop them from achieving their dreams.”

Guido-Allen made the remarks before heading into the Gleaners Community Food Bank’s 26th Annual Women’s Power Breakfast Tuesday at the MGM Grand Casino in Detroit. Since 1994, the event has helped Gleaners raise more than $3.4 million to support hunger-fighting programs for children.
