−2016 African American Women and the Law Conference (all-day)Sep 13 – Sep 14
Black Women Rising: Ending Structural Racism, Patriarchy, and Violence
The Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) and the African American Policy Forum/Center for Intersectionality and Policy Studies (AAPF/CIPS) have partnered to host the inaugural African American Women and the Law Conference National Legislative & Agenda Setting Convening in Washington, DC on September 13-14, 2016.
This important convening will bring together hundreds of African American women and those who advocate for us to begin to identify the key legal barriers and public policy challenges that limit our ability to reach our full potential.
African American women and girls face a multitude of challenges to achieving our full potential. Our status as both women and African Americans means we are subject to the social and systemic injustices of racism and sexism. As women of color, we face racial injustice and continue to be diminished by racial stereotypes of African American women both inside and outside our African American communities.
School-aged African American girls are more likely than all their female counterparts and many boys to be suspended, particularly for minor and subjective offenses. The rate at which African-American girls are suspended is the fastest growing suspension rate of any group of students, male or female. The source of much of this discipline is racial and gender stereotyping that label African-American girls as confrontational and provocative.
The AAWLC will bring together African American women and our advocates in an effort to build and strengthen alliances and curate partnerships; and facilitate regular convenings for the purposes of expanding knowledge of and support for progressive legislative and policy changes.
The AAWLC will include a National Legislative & Agenda Setting Convening, an intersectional conference with skills building, strategic planning and educational sessions focused legislative and public policy proposals, educational briefings and updates on relevant court and legal rulings, recently released research and emerging issues for sub-populations (such as LGBTQIA women, Seniors, or state/regional concerns).+2016 African American Women and the Law Conference (all-day)

−Business Owners Roundtable @ Principal Group9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Small Business Leaders: You are not Alone
Six-session Fall Series will start on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.
The following sessions will be Wednesdays every three weeks, for five successive sessions: October 5, October 26, November 16, December 7 2016 and January 4, 2017. In case of oversubscription, a second Fall Series Roundtable may be scheduled before September 14.
Small business owners often feel alone because their organizations are small, or they are an office of one. Exchanging support, advice and shared experience from small business peers in a variety of other businesses can be an invaluable tool. The Roundtable offers participants the opportunity to learn from each other in an interactive and collaborative forum. Each business owner discusses his/her challenges and the group contributes observations and suggestions. It’s like having your own Advisory Board!
For almost four years the Roundtable has been functioning as a multiple series of six sessions each. During each six-session series, approximately 10-12 small business CEOs/owners help peers enhance their leadership skills and business knowledge. During that time it has developed into a valuable, self-generating brand because it provides a social network that helps grow a successful business. In fact, it is a testament to its success that many participants attend multiple series. Its format and emphasis continue to evolve, based on the needs of the group.
Owners start by stating their business goals, then report on their challenges, successes and progress during the series. They determine contents and topics for the Roundtable. Member-selected topics addressed by SCORE and other outside speakers have included:
- Social media marketing effectiveness
- The sales process and cold calling
- The art of closing the sale
- Dealing with difficult employees and clients
- Financial controls
- Office productivity tools
Meetings occur Wednesdays, every three weeks, from 9 am to 12:00 Noon. Continental Breakfast is included. Fall Series fee for all sessions is $300.

Learn how you can use academic, government, and other grants to fund your games and create a successful appeal for funding.
Grant funding has become more prevalent for game developers, especially indie developers, in recent years. There are thousands of grant programs out there that game developers may qualify for from government agencies, schools, private foundations, and other organizations. Because games can fall under technological achievements, business, the arts, and academia there are unprecedented opportunities for indie developers to receive grants for socially conscious and educational games. Developers who make serious games will be particularly interested in how to secure grant funding and make a strong appeal to get their work funded.

−Create the Business Plan That’s Right for You @ Brooklyn Central Library10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Your business plan is a dynamic blueprint for your company’s future
A business plan is not “one size fits all”—it depends on your business strategy, goals and financial resources.

When crafting it, be sure to take into account customer acceptance, revenue and cash-flow growth, and the market for the product/service itself. An effective plan will include a timeline for implementing your business model.
This workshop will give you the tools and background to:
- Articulate your reasons for developing a business plan
- Develop achievable plans to determine and deliver value to your customers
- Formulate your business model and business goals
- Project funding needs and financial results
- Communicate your business strategy to stakeholders (potential investors, partners and lenders)
- Develop strategies that encourage stakeholders to participate
Who should attend?
Potential business owners, start-ups and those in business who want to create/update their business plans or launch a new product or service.
After the workshop, put this workshop to work by scheduling a free follow-up discussion with a SCORE NYC Mentor to get you started.+10:00 amCreate the Business Plan That’s Right for You @ Brooklyn Central Library
