The Women of Color (WoC) affinity group had a successful launch during the 2019 HBA Annual Conference. During this meet and greet, over 35 conference attendees gathered to kick off HBA’s initiative to change the narrative for women of color. The group started their morning on day two over a delightful hot cocoa bar and networking. In attendance was Liz Coyle, executive vice president, value offerings who shared, “We had a great turnout for our first WoC get together. The Affinity group leaders arranged a warm and welcoming reception and the attendees were eager to meet HBA colleagues and many raised their hands immediately to get involved. I heard:‘This is such a good idea’ quite a few times. Lots of energy and smiles. The new Affinity group is destined to be a huge success. These ladies are ‘on it’.”
