LIVESTREAM: Women Business Leaders Breakfast Series (NEW DATE, NEW SPEAKER)
May 15, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Topic: Living at the Intersection of Race and Gender
Hear Dr. Angela Reynolds, CEO, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh who took the helm of the YWCA Greater Pittsburgh, on February 24, 2020, an organization with over a 150 year history of promoting peace and justice. Within two weeks she was working with her new team to implement a pandemic plan, transition to remote work, establish ongoing communication with her board, and continue operations – while still introducing herself and leadership style to her team. Dr. Reynolds remained rooted in the passion that brought her to the position: knowing the YWCA is a critical regional partner in addressing persistent disparities between men and women, particularly for African American. What fueled her passion for eliminating racism and empowering women had not been altered by a pandemic – she is still an African-American woman ever mindful of the challenges and opportunities of living at the intersection of race and gender.
