A group of Leadership Birmingham board members and alumni met last week to discuss the launch of our next Leadership Birmingham class. They considered a number of issues including personal safety and health, program quality, space availability, and uncertainty remaining around the fall COVID case count. After deep discussion, we unanimously made the tough decision of postponing the class launch until September, 2021.
MOVING FORWARD Please join us in an important and inspiring discussion with members of the Leadership Birmingham Class of 2020 on the inequalities we are challenged to address and the ways we can use our power and position to change them. Inspired by the Class of 2020’s closing session, this is an opportunity for Leadership Birmingham alumni to discuss how we can move forward and take action, individually and collectively, to break down systemic and institutional racism.
Elise Penfield Executive Director of Leadership Birmingham 1994-2004 “I fondly recall how easily I could know her mood from the way she called my name: sometimes hastily, meaning act or speak now; endearingly out of genuine respect; quietly when facing a dilemma; loudly out of eager anticipation; laughingly to say can you believe that?!; and gently meaning another good day coming to a close. Those were 10 years of our lives inextricably interwoven into the fabric of Leadership Birmingham.
Remember and revisit the actions and stories of people who changed the world in Birmingham…
