Lora M. Robins Speaker Series

Image
Community leaders have the desire and charge to increase opportunities for families and children, yet often efforts are dampened by systemic inequities based on race, gender and economic status. These are not issues of the past. This year our Speaker Series will present three nationally known thought leaders who will share their perspectives on racial and class inequities.

Synapse Hub 027


Image

Leadership Metro Richmond is excited to collaborate with ValleyStar Credit Union to launch a new type of networking experience this fall that utilizes the Synapse hub model.  ValleyStar Credit Union now has locations in the Richmond area and desires to improve the well-being of its community. In case you are unfamiliar with Synapse, this local organization provides a collaborative environment for individuals to both network and learn from each other while also bringing awareness to local area nonprofits.  Our hub (HUB 027) will be slightly different, as we will be highlighting regional issues and accomplishments which may tie into the work of a local nonprofit but could also tie into the work of government entities and/or grassroots organizers.  We invite you to join us at one of our upcoming sessions focused on the following topics:

January 26 - Communicating through VUCA (Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity)

February 9 - School Segregation in Virginia


Date: 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month

Time: 11:00AM - 12:30PM

Location: Zoom virtual meeting roomm

Convening Leaders Rethinking How We House


It is no secret that there is a major deficit in affordable housing across the Richmond region. As we tackle the need for affordable housing, we must also continue to ensure that current residents are able to stay in their homes; homes that are safe and sound. Join us in a virtual discussion with Marion Cake (LMR '20), Vice President of Affordable Housing Development for project:HOMES as we discuss the innovative solutions appearing around the Richmond region from creative new builds to owner-occupied home repair. Learn about a local home made out of shipping containers and the forthcoming revitalization of Bermuda Estate Mobile Home Park. We hope you will join us to both learn and bring ideas to the table regarding how we can think differently about housing solutions in our region.

Woman Speak Your Truth


Creating safe spaces that require trust, invite vulnerability and foster relationships among this region's community leaders is part of the LMR mission. On the first Thursday of every month, LMR in partnership with Rita Ricks (LMR '89) will host a small group of female alumni for authentic conversation around both their challenges and their hopes for the future.
