3 IWF Members Share Their Re-Wirement Paths
Wednesday, June 7
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm (Pacific)
We know that many IWF members are considering a possible transition out of full-time paid work (for others) in the next few years or are already in the midst of that transition. Please join us and bring your questions for what promises to be a lively and interesting panel presentation featuring three IWF NorCal members who will share their stories of finding purpose, meaning, and satisfaction during their own career/life transitions. Moderator: Denise Brosseau
During her 40 year career as an attorney at Pillsbury Madison and Sutro and Trucker Huss, Barbara Creed became a nationally recognized expert in employee benefits. She also served on and chaired a number of boards, and after her retirement in 2008, she served as a trustee and Vice Chair of the Church Pension Fund, the $14 billion fund providing pensions and other benefits to the clergy and lay employees of the Episcopal Church in the United States. Since retirement, Barbara has reinvented herself as an expert in the Supreme Court, offering popular interactive discussion programs of important cases pending before the Supreme Court. She helps participants gain an understanding of how the Court does its work and an appreciation for the complexities of the cases the Court handles. Barbara was a founding member of IWF Northern California.
Sonita Lontoh spent the first three decades of her diverse, global career as a senior executive at both new innovative businesses within large global Fortune 100 companies such as HP, Siemens, PG&E; and at entrepreneurial, VC-backed Silicon Valley technology companies. After reinventing herself in 2022, she entered portfolio life full-time, which includes serving as an independent board director at companies like Sunrun, the largest consumer solar company in the US, and TrueBlue, a global workforce solutions company. She also serves as as an advisor to Sway Ventures, a Silicon Valley VC firm investing in the sustainable transformation of foundational industries. Her specialty is in ESG, digital transformation, and cybersecurity.
After a long career in healthcare, including as the Executive Vice President and Chief of Staff/Chief Human Resources Officer for Atrium Health ($9.6B in annual revenue, 65,000 employees), Debra Plousha-Moore reinvented herself in 2018. She and her husband founded the Plousha Moore Group where they provide executive-level advisory services to C-Suite executives with a specialty in board governance, executive compensation and ethics, diversity, equity, access and inclusion. She also serves on the boards of the University of Dayton, SFSU Foundation and Golden Gate University.
