BOSTON - BostonChron -- A Maven's World announces its virtual lineup and the Maven awardee of its annual Women's Conference which will be held Friday - March 26, 2021 from 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. and Saturday - March 27, 2021 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. The virtual conference features speakers, panel discussions, career rooms, networking spaces, resources, and an exhibitor marketplace. Speakers include Robi Reed, Emmy Award Winning Casting Director and Vice President of Talent and Casting at BET, and Michele Meyer-Shipp, Esq., Chief People & Culture Officer at Major League Baseball. Saturday opening remarks will be delivered by Kim Janey, Boston City Council President, and Incoming Mayor of Boston.

"Our Conference is of high importance, because It is vital that we know, examine and learn from the data regarding race and gender inequity in the workplace; equity is deeper and more complex than equality, inclusion and diversity and the indicators on pay equity are staggering truths. The current coronavirus pandemic has deepened long-standing biases against Women of Color, and Black Women are impacted the hardest. Women of Color are shouldering more responsibility at home with less financial security; this has been built into our systems over generations and will affect our future generations. For those who are marginalized not to be left behind, we must move forward with high priority, knowledge, understanding and action to ensure that equity initiatives be established, monitored and successfully implemented," said Anna Foster, Founder and CEO of A Maven's World.

The conference will give attendees a deeper understanding of the challenges many Women of Color face at home and in the workplace. According to the latest data from the Center for American Progress, 67.5% of Black mothers and 41.4% of Latina mothers were the primary breadwinners for their families, while 37% of white mothers were the sole breadwinners.

At the A Maven's World conference, attendees will have the opportunity to connect, strategize, and learn. Business leaders will deliver keynote speeches and host panel discussions throughout the conference. We will celebrate the 2021 Maven Award recipient Gerri Mason Hall, Vice President of Global Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging at NetApp.
