The Association of Black Foundation Executives (ABFE) features Converge founder and principal Takema Robinson in ABFE Magazine’s August 2017 edition. Takema, a 2013 ABFE Connecting Leaders Fellow, sat down with Toya Randall, Senior Director of Community Initiatives at Casey Family Programs and ABFE Board Member, to discuss what it means to be a Black woman in leadership and how she sustains herself in the work.
This September, Converge, Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights and Orleans Public Education Network will co-host a public forum on educational equity in New Orleans. The forum will serve as the official launch of the New Orleans Education Equity Index website and the release of the accompanying Equity Matters report. The Index is designed to promote educational equity in New Orleans by measuring and reporting on how well schools are providing the access and supports for all students to receive an excellent education that affirms their fundamental dignity and provides them the opportunity to thrive.
