The Glover Report: Why a BMORENEWS Global Forum on Women's Empowerment? I'm Glad You Asked!
(BALTIMORE - June 13, 2012) - It is with great humility and love that we - DMGlobal Marketing and Public Relations, the Creator of www.bmorenews.com and the producers of “Empower Hour” on WOLB 1010 AM – present to you the BMORENEWS Global Forum on Women’s Empowerment on Friday at the United Nations.
A question was posed: Why women? Why women’s empowerment?
Well, there are a number of reasons. For one, I’ve seen many situations where men could help women, but don’t. Even further, I’m aware of the sexual harassment that women face all the time. It’s wrong.
Black people – especially black people – must return to the foundation of working together as one. As the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan discussed the Willie Lynch Theory at the historic Million Man March – part of the divide and conquer is between black men and black women. So, bottomline: I feel it is imperative and vital to the healing of the race for some men to do some genuine work for the sistas – like they have done for us for so very long.
Women, especially in the black community, have had to hold things together. Hell! In looking around today – considering that black men dominate the penal system, sisters still carry a heavy burden and are left to fill absent shoes all by herself.
In the many networking functions we have given over the years – brothers like Omar Muhammad, Teddy Coates, and myself have consequently encouraged a strong black women’s business organization – similar to Black Professional Men. After all, both Coates and Muhammad have served (Teddy still serves) as President.
Some progress was made. For instance, back in 2003 – some of these women, including Debbie Taylor, formed Black Professional Women. While that particular group did not survive, a great thing did happen. The groundwork was laid. Today, I can tell you that there are some very strong, vibrant women’s networking groups. Two of the strongest ones are Baltimore-based “Women of Power”, founded by Eric Stewart, and Sisters4Sisters Network, Inc., headed by good people like Peggy Morris and Lakei Forest-Cosby.
So, in short, this is not just an event. This is a movement – where a few brothers, like Norm Bond in Philadelphia www.NormBond.com and LaQuay Juel in New Jersey www.BlackNJ.com, have been huge supporters of women entrepreneurs and women professionals.
Another huge reason for my interest in a global forum on women’s empowerment is that I’m a proud daddy of an eleven-year old princess. It is my intention for her to have the most powerful network of caring and supportive women in her realm.
……… And there’s no time like the present!
I could go on and on. Just know that a great team of people from along the East Coast – from North Carolina to Connecticut – will convene what we foresee as the first of many BMORENEWS Global Forums on Women’s Empowerment. We are proud of the featured attendees – all of whom are either at the top of their games or nearing their top. They are educators, authors, entrepreneurs, CEOs, Ph.Ds, doctors, lawyers, business coaches, innovators, survivors, conquerors, deliverers of sound products and services, and children of God.
Personally, I’m thrilled. And my princess will be with me – as well as the prince. Latecomers: The cost of the Summit is $136.
