    AAWGT EDUCATION MEETING

    THE FIRST 1000 DAYS OF A CHILD'S LIFE

    Wednesday, February 5, 2020

    6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


    Bowen Theater

    Maryland Hall

    801 Chase Street

    Annapolis MD 21401

    The science is clear: the first 1000 days, from conception to age three, are critical in the development of a child’s brain and future. An infant’s earliest experiences and relationships dramatically influence long-term brain development, social-emotional growth and cognitive development, significantly impacting future health and success in school and life.  


    Nationally-recognized expert and keynote speaker Dr. Brenda Jones Harden, Richman Professor for Children & Families at the University of Maryland School of Social Work, will describe how growing up in challenging environments or circumstances can compromise healthy growth unless effective interventions are put in place.

    The Judith P. Hoyer Center Early Learning Hubs, also known as “Judy Centers,” focus on children who face such challenges. Savannah Stamates, Program Director for one of two Judy Centers in Anne Arundel County, will tell us how our local Judy Center programs are designed and implemented to help infants and toddlers develop the emotional and cognitive skills and resilience that will enable them to thrive, both at school and in life. 

    This event is free, open to the public and accessible to persons with disabilities.

    GENERAL MEETING

    AAWGT'S ANNUAL WOMEN AND LEADERSHIP FORUM

    The Cost of Silence


    Wednesday, March 4, 2020

    Blue Heron Room

    Quiet Waters Park

    Annapolis MD

    Did you know that the Census numbers collected every 10 years determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed to state and local communities for critical local services like Medicaid, SNAP, Head Start and more?

    Did you know that in the 2010 census, Anne Arundel County had a 20% non-response rate, resulting in more than $43 million lost to our community because people went uncounted. For each community to obtain the resources it needs, every count matters! The cost of silence is severe for those women and families we seek to serve.

    Join us for a dynamic and informative presentation about the challenges and implications of Census 2020, given by Maggie Gunther Osborn (Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, United Philanthropy Forum). Maggie's presentation will be followed by an interactive panel discussion with representatives from our community deeply invested and impacted by the results of Census 2020.

    This event is open to members and the general public.
