The Daily Record
A look at the growing voice of women in Annapolis will be the opening panel at The Daily Record’s third annual Women’s Leadership Summit on March 20 from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Coppin State University. The summit brings together Top 100 Women, Leading Women and the state’s network of women professionals to learn about important topics facing women, discuss community involvement and create mentoring relationships. “It’s going to be inspiring,” said Michelle Siri, executive director of The Women’s Law Center of Maryland. “You are going to get to meet really interesting women that are doing great things. It is a chance to network and it is a chance to learn and hear things from a perspective that you might not already be considering things in. … Right now (in the General Assembly), there are just so many exciting things happening.” Siri will be moderating the panel featuring Martin, Jo Saint-Charles, political action chair of the NAACP Maryland State Conference, Del. Ariana Kelly, D-Montgomery and Caryn York, Job Opportunities Task Force (JOTF) Executive Director discussing women’s growing voices and a wide variety of topics, including workplace harassment, uplifting the voices for women of color and economic security.
