CB003 The Role of Women in Transforming Communities - Interactive Webinar Training

From Harriet Tubman escaping slavery and become a leading abolitionist to Dorothy Richardson organizing her Pittsburgh neighbors and founding what became the NeighborWorks network, to your next door neighbor organizing a child care program or a community garden, women have been at the forefront of social justice and community development movements. But their contributions have not always been properly recognized, and they are often not well represented in influential leadership and executive positions in community institutions. In this course we explore and celebrate women’s contributions to the field, identify the special contributions they can make to organizational culture, and define strategies to support their continued engagement and advancement to leadership roles.

This faculty-led webinar training will last 90 minutes and include resource materials, interactive polling, and participant Q & A with the faculty. A quiz will be open at the conclusion of the session which you must pass in order to obtain a certificate and credit toward continuing education hours. Participants can access the training site upon registration and begin looking at the available resources prior to the live online training session.
