Our And/Both Moment - President's Message
On June 5 we hosted Empowered Girl Talk, a conversation focused on diversity, equity & inclusion. While the event was already scheduled, we pivoted the purpose of this meeting after the death of George Floyd to create a space to openly & vulnerably talk about systemic racism. 

I was asked to open the meeting with a few remarks, and I would like to share those remarks with you now. 

Join us to Meet the Finalists!
