Mayor Domenic J. Sarno is proud to announce that Chief of Staff Denise Jordan was invited to represent Western Massachusetts at #BlackWomenLead100, a leadership conference spearheaded by Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley and Higher Heights for America, a national organization dedicated to strengthening the pipeline of black women in politics at all levels. The event will take place Tuesday, July 12, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston. Attendance is by invitation only.
The conference will bring together 100 black women leaders to fill the Edward M. Kennedy Institute’s US Senate Chamber replica for an opportunity to take over a powerful space that black women have been historically underrepresented in – the United States Senate.
Of Jordan’s participation, Mayor Sarno said, “I am not surprised – Denise has been a well-respected leader not only here in Springfield, but also in our Commonwealth. She’s done an outstanding job for our city and has been a great partner to me too.”
