United Way of Greater Newark (UWGN) is hosting its 8th Annual Women’s Breakfast to virtually celebrate “Women Leading through Crisis” on Thursday, March 18, 2021. The event will bring together female community leaders in Greater Newark to discuss the personal and professional challenges they’ve faced during the pandemic and ways in which they’ve supported the community. A portion of the proceeds raised at the breakfast will support UWGN’s Young Professional United food insecurity project to provide relief to three food pantries in the Greater Newark community.
The event will begin at 9:30am with three breakout rooms to discuss: the “glass cliff” phenomenon; racial disparities and COVID-19; and social equity in a pandemic. Moderators for the discussions include: Mary-Ann Jackson, VP, Process Management at Prudential Financial; Keri Logosso-Misurell, JD, Executive Director, Greater Newark Health Care Coordination; and Andrea Lewis-Walker, Deputy-in-Charge, U.S. District Court, NJ. Panelists include: Dr. Chris Pernell, Chief Strategic Integration & Health Equity Officer at University Hospital; Andrea McChristian, Law & Policy Director, New Jersey Institute for Social Justice; and Adenah Bayoh, Entrepreneur & Foundation, Adenah Bayoh & Co.
