PROGRAMS & COMMITTEES
Education Committee: Chaired by Cynthia Patterson
The committee develops and implements programs that enhance and encourage leadership skills in young girls, and advocates in support of educational issues for black women of all ages. In support of its National Organization, the committee works to eliminate disparities, improve educational outcomes, support STEM/STEAM educational opportunities and ensures equity in education and college preparedness for Black women and girls. Locally, the Education Committee sponsors or participates in various STEM/STEAM events that further the promotion of these career fields to elementary and middle school aged children. The Committee also supports HBCU’s and all issues surrounding Access and Affordability. The Education Committee sponsors programs that also enhance the community’s understanding of college choice, college application procedures and college affordability issues. We conduct workshops and forums that provide valuable resources, advocacy strategies and support, and assists with both highlighting and communicating issues, locally or globally, that affect educational outcomes.
