Pittsburgh-Mon Valley Black Women's Roundtable Formulates an Advisory Board

After hosting a successful Solutions Forum in the spring of 2020, organizers of The Pittsburgh – Mon Valley Black Women’s Roundtable are formulating an Advisory Board. “The forum was successful,” says Reverend Dr. Judith C. Moore executive director and founder of the organization. “While moving forward, organizing for next steps based on the outcomes of the forum and planning to implement actionable steps having an advisory board is a logical first step.”

The Policy Statement of the Pittsburgh-Mon Valley Black Women Roundtable is to: promote public policies that ensure stable families and a prepared workforce for today and tomorrow. BWR believes that there must be intentional efforts, including program development, funding, staffing, administrative practice and rule of law to ensure genuine equity — especially for Black women and their communities, low income communities and others that have been traditionally left out of the policymaking arena.

Though in the planning stages, the proposed purpose of the advisory board members is for them to be instrumental resources and consultants for the organization’s ability to provide locally relevant and effective programs.

Advisory Board members should be familiar with and a strong belief in the BWR policy statement, purpose, programs and goals; • Positively promote the work of the organization and advocate for its interests; • Attend advisory board quarterly meetings; • Make recommendations regarding programming or outreach as requested; • Provide advice and support to the regional convenor; • Serve on a working committee if at all possible * assist in fundraising and grant submission; • Review agendas, minutes and other documentation when distributed in order to stay familiar with the organization; • Whenever possible, attend or volunteer at BWR events.
