Eleversity announces the Women of Color Virtual Summit: An Educational Series. This dynamic professional development conference has transitioned online into four sessions scheduled for July 23 and 30 and Aug. 6 and 13. The summit is created for and by women of color and is open to all supporters and champions of diversity, equity and inclusion. People who consider themselves allies are strongly encouraged to register for this event.
This year’s theme is Courageous Conversations – Moving from conversation to implementation by advancing strategies for diversity, equity and inclusion. This timely discussion focuses on ways individuals, corporate leaders and community stakeholders can act to address systematic barriers, inequities and health disparities that affect women of color.
More than two dozen presenters will engage participants in discussions related to COVID-19 and race relations, employment equity, education opportunities and more. Keynote presenters are community leader Helen Lowery; Ronnie Pollack, executive director of the Native American Cultural Center; Brittany Read, founder of The Barcode; and Melisza Campos, marketing manager at Wegmans Food Markets.
The Women of Color Summit is an initiative led by Sara Taylor, community liaison and training specialist at Eleversity and Heritage Christian Services. For more information, go to Eleversity.org/summit.
