Experts gathered today for the final 2015 “Write to Change the World” program in Atlanta. Today’s program brought together public health practitioners, humanitarian workers, LGBT activists, musicians and small business consultants from around the Atlanta community. These brilliant minds are shaping the conversation around a wide range of topics, such as pregnant women and mental health, increasing opportunities for employment in underrepresented areas and raising the visibility of vocational programs. We are looking forward to hearing their voices influence the public dialogue in Atlanta and far beyond.
We were joined by Andrea Swartzendruber, a Fellow at the Georgia Women’s Policy Institute (GWPI) — a year-long intensive program for women in Georgia to become advocates on pressing issues in their communities. GWPI is an initiative by the YWCA of Greater Atlanta, who like The OpEd Project, are mobilizing and empowering women to become leaders in their respective fields.
