This event is hosted by IMPACT Silver Spring.
At this year’s IMPACT NOW event, we will explore historical and structural racism as a root cause of disparities. Each year, IMPACT Now! convenes hundreds of people from throughout IMPACT Silver Spring’s diverse network to lift up a shared vision of a thriving multi-cultural community. This year, we will begin a community conversation on steps we can take to achieve racial equity in Montgomery County
For IMPACT NOW! 2017, we are delighted to welcome Dr. Yanique Redwood as our keynote speaker. In addition to her role as President and CEO of the Consumer Health Foundation (CHF), Yanique has been a leading voice in bringing racial equity to the forefront in the philanthropic sector across the region. She does so through the CHF Game Changer Blog, invited speaking engagements, and in her role as co-chair of the Racial Equity Working Group of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers. Yanique is also an adjunct faculty member at University of Maryland School of Public Health where she teaches doctoral-level courses on health equity and health policy.
