Momentum for BlackFemaleProject continues to build.
We closed the summer season with a bang getting Mad Love from Oakland Pan African Festival, hosting Successful, Savvy and Strategic YOU! Workshop with Executive Coach Charmaine McClarie, and receiving budgeting and forecasting technical assistance from our funder, The Pollination Project #seedthechange.
Last week, we returned from a week-long trip to the East Coast for research and strategic planning that included a visit to the African American Museum of History and Culture in Washington, D.C., meeting with Leslie Fields-Cruz of the National Black Programming Consortium regarding our residency, and several sessions with project advisors and supporters: Charmaine Mercer, Alicia Meeks, Etopia Lane, Lisa Durden, and Yzette Lanier who offered valuable insight as we prepare to release BlackFemaleProject stories beginning in January 2017.
This fall, BlackFemaleProject steps out in the documentary Invisible Women: Being a Black Woman in Corporate America, speaks truth in our Conversation Series, and shows up for the third and final installment of our 2016 Workshop Series focused on lifestyle with Expert-in-Residence Phyllis Bowie.
