    Ursuline College’s Rust Belt Revisited Series: Black Women in the Rust Belt: A Call To Urgency

    March 10, 2021 from 6:00pm - 7:00pm

    Ursuline College’s Rust Belt Revisited Series: Black Women in the Rust Belt: A Call To Urgency

    Cleveland was recently ranked the worst place in America for Black Women within the areas of healthcare, education, and economics/workplaces. More broadly, rust belt cities are hemorrhaging talent, as they lag behind cities that invest in equity-based, inclusion-forward initiatives that uplift the lived experience of diverse residents. Due to COVID-19 and greater socio-political and economic upheaval, Northeast Ohio has the opportunity to position itself as posed for seismic and innovative change.
