In-Person March and April Events Postponed

COVID-19 has led us all into unexpected space (and made us realize just how many mailing lists we really are on!)We explored, discussed, and even found a solution to move to a virtual event. While our brilliant and talented speakers serve as a crux to bring us all together, it’s the community (YOU!) that makes our little morning breakfast lecture series so incredible. The health and well-being of our community is of the utmost importance, so we are rescheduling our March and April events.We’ll be back on May 29 with Stephanie Ybarra (Baltimore Center Stage) speaking on the theme of NATURE. And then we’re happy to invite Steve Chu (Ekiben) back to talk about IDENTITY on the rescheduled date of June 26. Our April speaker, Irena Stein (Alma Cocina Latina) will discuss PURPOSE on the rescheduled date of August 28. It’s going to be a great summer.

Support our local community!

Last month’s Morning Match board was chalked full with creative opportunities and talented BALers looking to collaborate. Check out the list below and reach out to someone you’d like to work with!
