February is Black History Month, a time where we recognize the progression and accomplishments of the African American community in the United States. Black history is American history, there are a plethora of contributions made by black people that have catapulted society forward. There are countless examples of African American Leaders breaking the glass ceiling and exceeding expectations. Why is this important you ask? For many of us representation matters. Seeing individuals who look like you, with similar life experiences, and excelling, speaks to what is possible. Black history continues to be made, even at Durham’s Partnership for Children. Durham’s Partnership for Children has its first African American Executive Director, Danielle Johnson! While Danielle has been at The Partnership since 2004, in her time as Executive Director she has transformed the landscape of Dpfc and further proves that history is still being made! In honor of Black History Month, we chose to highlight the impact of Black Leadership within our organization. Tap into their experience at The Partnership and tune in to our podcast “Planting Seeds with The Partnership” on Tuesday February 8, 2022! This is an open, candid discussion about the culture of leadership implemented by 3 Women of Color at The Partnership. You don’t want to miss this conversation!
