A Year in Review: The Beyond Measure Impact

A Year in Review: The Beyond Measure Impact

We’ve been busy since our initial launch this time last year. Check out a few of our highlights since 2016.

September 2016 – American Records Management Association/Greater Washington Chapter – conducted a session on being a conscious leader at the annual event for approximately 40 professionals from multiple sectors in the District of Columbia.

October 2016 “Can You SEE Me? Women, Leadership, and Race” – this was BeyondMeasureLLC’s own inaugural event that brought 62 of the most powerful women from five states of different races, religions, and backgrounds together to strengthen race relations and promote diversity and inclusion in the world around them. This event was born out of the observations and responses to so many tragic events involving race over the past year. I could not sit around and watch things happen without doing something in my own small world to bring awareness to the issues that we face in this country. Who better to make the change? That’s right! Women!! This will be an annual event – STAY TUNED FOR UPCOMING INFO ON THIS YEAR’S EVENT!!

  • October 2016  Girls as CEO’s Foundation – conducted a break-out session on leadership for a group of young women of color in Baltimore City.
  • December 2016 – January 2017 – Through a partnership with Corporate Gold LLC, founded by a dear friend of mine, Ilka Chavez, we co-lead a 2-day staff retreat for the National Council on Aging in Northern Virginia, which included two sessions on – Leadership Compass and Cultural Awareness. This also included follow-up with the organization for feedback and recommendations.
  • March 2017 – Philamatheon’s Monthly Meeting – guest speaker to discuss the five bridges of leadership consciousness with a group of ten female community leaders of Baltimore.
  • May 2017 – Youth Peace Conference/Sandy Spring Friends School – Olney, Maryland – “How to be a Leaders in Today’s Society of Ism’s”- conducted a workshop for high school students from across Montgomery County who wanted to come together to explore the root causes and effects of systems of discrimination present in our society, like racism, sexism, and ableism.
