A native of Greensboro, Mae has always been passionate about ensuring equality and social advocacy in the work she does in her professional and personal life. Growing up in Greensboro, Mae witnessed first-hand segregation and the inequality in the lives of many that persisted as a result. During her highly decorated corporate career as a Human Resources C-suite executive, Mae used her position to help promote equality and inclusion by mentoring and sponsoring other women and people of color.
Since returning to Greensboro, Mae has invested her time and talents in volunteerism and philanthropy. She is committed to building and sustaining a better city for generations to come, driven by her belief in the promise that Greensboro embodies and its reputation as a caring community.
Through the collective efforts of the BIG Equity Fund and existing black organizations in the community, Mae plans to take a collaborative approach toward accomplishing this goal. By pooling all of the available resources, Mae believes that there is an opportunity for donors of color, and specifically with the partnership of the BIG Equity Fund and the Black community, to demonstrate their ability to leverage influential, reputational, social, financial, and intellectual capital to solve the issues in Greensboro.
