Tricia Staible, president of Robinson Fans, shares her story at the Region Shaping Our Region event held by the Butler County of Chamber at the Regional Learning Alliance Thursday.

Workforce shortages, mentorship, collaboration and flexibility were all discussed when Butler County leaders and community members gathered at the Women Shaping Our Region conference in Cranberry on Thursday morning.

After a COVID-19 hiatus, the conference, organized by the Butler County Chamber of Commerce, returned for its second year of operation at the Regional Learning Alliance Learning and Conference Center at Cranberry Woods.

Butler County Commissioners Kim Geyer and Leslie Osche moderated a panel discussion between five female community leaders: Belinda Richardson, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Butler County Community College; Cheryl Moon-Sirianni, PennDOT District 11 executive; Tammy Schuey, general manager at the Butler Eagle; Bobbi Watt Geer, president and CEO of United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania; and Tricia Staible, president of Robinson Fans, Inc.

“This has certainly been two years of upheaval in our lives. Leadership has been challenged to its core in these last couple years,” Osche said. “This group represents a very diverse leadership in education, transportation, business and media.”
