Welcoming New Fellows, Hiring for VP, and more...

How fitting that this time around Labor Day allows us the opportunity to celebrate the incredible work of our Cohort 3 Fellows over the past year and welcome our newest Fellows. With Cohort 4, we are happy to welcome more than 40 Fellows, placed at more than 30 different organizations across Baltimore's social impact sector.

Over the past couple of days, Fellows have been getting to know one another, setting norms for their cohort, and learning more about the city they'll serve -- whether native Baltimoreans or those newer to the city.

I'm particularly excited about enhancements being made in this fourth year of our Fellowship, with a redesign of programming, dedicated faculty providing monthly skills development, and increased involvement by our Visionary Cause Leaders.

Race & Equity guest lecturer Dr. Lawrence Brown of Morgan State University put it best at his presentation this morning, noting that this orientation has just been a taste. We are looking forward to the year ahead, the ongoing learning and sharing as we continue to advance a citywide agenda for equity and racial justice.
