Girl Talk: Women and Race

Girl Talk: Women and Race


Girls Night Out

Sponsored by Associated Black Charities and Baltimore Racial Justice was a huge success!

In November 2012 ABC began their girl talk conversation on the impact of race on women’s lives. What they found, is that race does still have an important impact on women’s lives. With a group of over 60 participants, the panel of presenters had focused conversation on how structural barriers manifest in our daily lives. The panel is pictured below: Adar Ayira, Project Manager for the More in the Middle Initiative Associated Black Charities, Cindy Plavier Truitt, CDO Humanim, Maria Welch Martinez, CEO, Respira Medical, Caryn York, Policy Associate, Job Opportunities Task Force, (front)Diane Bell McKoy, President and CEO of Associated Black Charities

Okay, can we talk? We know that we are not a “post-racial” society- or even close.  But does race STILL have an impactful stranglehold on our careers, our families, our cross-racial relationships, our daily lives? Or is it that we-as a society and as women-just cannot let go let go of America’s racial legacy, allowing it to define our lives? Diane Bell-McKoy, President/CEO, Associated Black Charities, will moderate a panel discussion about the ways race impacts women’s lives.  She will be joined by panelist Maria Welch Martinez, CEO, Respira Medical; Cindy Plavier-Truitt, Chief Developmet Officer, Humanim, Inc.; and Caryn York, Policy Associate, Job Opportunities Task Force.  Baltimore Racial Justice Action and Associated Black Charities invite you-women AND men-to join us for Girl Talk: Women and Race.

Security-monitored parking available on both sides of the building and the parking lot across Lanvale Street.
