Black Mothers Breastfeeding Association (BMBFA) will launch the Birth and Breastfeeding Leadership Institute to serve as a virtual national leadership development program designed to advance the community in the maternal-child-health sector while decreasing the racial bias black communities often face.
The goal of the Birth and Breastfeeding Leadership Institute is to improve black birth and breastfeeding outcomes by activating, strengthening and advancing the power of leadership inherent in all black communities. This work is supported by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
“We are thankful for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s investment in people. This Institute is an opportunity to expand the capacity of leaders to affect change on behalf of black families in communities throughout the nation,” stated Founding Executive Director, Kiddada Green.
The Birth and Breastfeeding Leadership Institute, set to launch in 2021, will directly influence leadership in various health communities across the United States, particularly those targeting African-American women and children. Learn more at bmbfa.org/birth-breastfeeding-leadership-institute
