About the Meeting:

BHFN intends to focus more deeply on racial inequities in behavior and mental health. The November session will start to level set around racial inequities in behavioral and mental health. We also expect this session will call into question the way funders may be perpetuating these inequities. Longer term BHFN seeks to develop sustained learning and sequence of programming around racial equity. 

Our confirmed speakers are Margarita Alegria, PhD, Chief of the Disparities Reearch Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and Reverend Liz Walker, Founder of the Cory Johnson Program for Post-Traumatic Healing.

This meeting is being planned by a diversity, equity, and inclusion working group of the Network.  Working members are Jacquie Anderson of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation, Danielle Belanger of GMA Foundations, Megan MacDavey of the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation, Jess Rittner of the Klarman Family Foundation, and Shanna Shulman of the Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation.

Zoom information will be sent via email in advance of the meeting.
