      Black Feminisms Forum

      To facilitate deep dialogue and share knowledge, tools, and strategies for Black feminist organizing and with other movements and allies;

      To contribute to building and strengthening an ongoing, transnational, inter-generational movement community of Black feminists;

      To collaborate and build strong relationships of solidarity, and effective coalitions between Black feminists and other movements.

      • Calculate your taxes 

      This workshop will focus on QuickBooks installed on your Windows desktop. Those using QuickBooks Online should enroll in the QuickBooks Online version (Cloud) workshop instead. 

      The instructor will be an Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor Consultant and Trainer with Presti & Naegele.

      Meditation and Mindfulness Sept 12.001

      Join us on Monday, September 12th from 7:00PM to 8:30PM for our Be Social Change Workshop, Meditation and Mindfulness: Increase Presence and Focus In Your Work and Life, with meditation trainer and nonprofit professional Jenn Lishansky.

      Meditation and mindfulness have become extremely popular among the most successful people in the world and rightly so: more and more scientific research shows that regular meditation can greatly improve the health of our mind and body. Practicing meditation and mindfulness can help us let go of distracting thoughts that cloud our minds, expand awareness of ourselves, others, and the world, as well as reduce stress, increase focus, and improve our abilities to be creative.

      With just a few minutes a day, you can begin experiencing the benefits of meditation including:

      • Improved mental clarity and focus

      • A greater feeling of presence, positivity, and compassion

      • Higher energy levels and better sleep

      • Increased creativity and ability to manage change

      • Greater sense of balance in life and work

      In Meditation and Mindfulness: Increase Presence and Focus In Your Work and Life, you will learn a diverse set of meditation and mindfulness techniques that will allow you to access a state of stillness, self-awareness, and sense of calm wherever you are. You will learn how to prepare your body for meditation and be guided through a series of techniques that will build a foundation for establishing your own regular meditation practice. After each technique, there will be time to reflect about your experience in order to gain a personal awareness about methods that can be applied on an on-going basis. Then we will strategize around incorporating mindfulness in the workplace including tips and suggestions to reduce stress, increase tranquility, and inspire rejuvenation.

       WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

      • A diverse set of meditation techniques for creating stillness in the mind

      • How to use meditation to increase focus, self-awareness, and creativity

      • Strategies for practicing mindfulness at work to reinvigorate day-to-day experiences

      • Tips for carrying forward a regular meditation and mindfulness practice

       WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR

      • Professionals, entrepreneurs, and anyone looking to reduce stress, increase focus and creativity, and experience more tranquility in their lives.

    1. 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).

      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.

      Facilitator: Jerry Weinstein, Certified Business Mentor, SCORE NYC

      Jerry Weinstein is a Certified SCORE NYC Mentor. He is an experienced corporate leader, owner of several businesses, an outside Board Member and currently involved in two ongoing businesses. He has experience in global and US high-growth businesses, and is committed to peer to peer interaction and learning.

    3. Grant Funding For Indie Game Developers @ Microsoft
      6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      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.

      Featured Topics

      • How to choose a grant program

      • How to find out if your game is eligible for grant funding

      • Putting together a grant application

      • Formalities that grant funding may require

      • Potential impacts of receiving a grant

      • Finding the perfect partnering organization and effectively working with them

      • And much more!

      Instructor Rachel Presser runs point-and-click adventure game outfit Himalaya Studios as CFO and Executive Producer, and spearheaded a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013 with six-figure results. She holds a B.S. in Accounting from Lehman College and M.S. in Accounting from Hunter College, and is a federally-licensed tax professional (Enrolled Agent) of almost 10 years.

    1. Create the Business Plan That’s Right for You @ Brooklyn Central Library
      10:00 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. As a rule, your small-business plan should be flexible and proceed through affordable steps. 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.
