Network 2000 Was Pleased to Award the Following Grants for 2012-2013
Associated Black Charities Board Development Pipeline
Associated Black Charities has developed a pipeline of 150+ professionals from racially under-represented groups to serve on non-profit boards. This grant will allow them to expand to include a special focus on women, who in the Baltimore-Washington region hold a smaller percentage of nonprofit board positions (42%) than the national average (46%). This unique program approaches the topic of board leadership from the worldview and historical perspective of people of color and gender.
Tuerk House Develops Leadership and Coaching Program for Key Female Managers
Tuerk House‘s Leadership Training and Coaching Program for Key Female Managers provides leadership training for key female managers who oversee services for 1,200 women and men annually who struggle with their addiction to alcohol or drugs. The program will help them function more effectively individually by enhancing their leadership skills, as a management team, and more broadly within the provider network in addressing Baltimore’s number one health problem.
Towson University‘s College of Business and Economics Starts MentHER Program
Towson University’s College of Business and Economics’ MentHER is a “pay-it-forward” program which combines networking and mentoring among women of various age groups to support the growth, learning and empowerment of college women and high school girls in the Baltimore area. Women in industry network with one another and mentor college students, who in turn interact with Baltimore City high school students.
