Tonya Aikens and Alicia McLeod

At a time when many organizations have put out public statements in support of Black Lives Matter and in opposition to White supremacy, dismantling our organizational inequities remains an elusive next step. Maryland Humanities invites you to join us for a speaker series focused on operationalizing racial equity work in the humanities field. Leaders from Maryland will speak to the efforts they have led in their respective organizations. Topics covered will include incorporating racial equity into hiring, where to start when leading an organization, and leading the work within a university setting.

The series will be moderated by Alicia McLeod, Executive Director of Challenging Racism and Maryland Humanities Board Member.

This event will feature Tonya Aikens, President & CEO, Howard County Library System.

There is no cost to participate, but registration for each event is required. 

Maryland Humanities is a statewide, educational nonprofit organization that creates and supports educational experiences in the humanities that inspire all Marylanders to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities.
