Just weeks into 2021, our country has seen unprecedented highs and lows. From the continued impacts of COVID-19, to the ongoing plague of racial injustices and the historic inauguration of the Biden-Harris administration, one message is clear: women of color are uniquely positioned to lead in this moment both on the national stage
and in our own region
. Our innovative spirit, expertise across every industry, and ability to organize and mobilize are just a few reasons why we are equipped to take on every challenge ahead of us. Join us on March 16, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. for Entrust Black Women to Lead: A Dialogue with Prince George’s County
. This session will feature an exciting conversation with Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks
and women of color who are serving in key leadership roles in her Administration. Guests can look forward to hearing about the vision for the County, plans to tackle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and insights on how women of color are ushering us into this new chapter. The program will also serve as the official launch of Entrust Black Women (EBW)
, an initiative that empowers our members and challenges employers to be intentional in their efforts to create equitable, inclusive environments within their organizations.
