In every single way possible, the 'Reclaiming Our Time' conference was created with Black Women in Education in mind.

We see you.

We know that you are overqualified and under-appreciated.

We know that the weight of this work is taking a mental, physical, and emotional toll.

We know that you are magical nonetheless.

We know that the space you occupy is better because you are there.

Come be in community with us,

As we celebrate sisterhood, center wellness, and manifest joy.

We see you.

This conference is for ANY Black Woman who works in a school building. Whether you're in the classroom, in the school store, 

in development, in administration, in the business office, in the cafeteria- no matter who you are, this is for you.

We can't wait to be in community with you!


The conference includes two half days and one full day, totaling two days of conference time

While the 'Reclaiming Our Time' conference does not have official conference hotel, we suggest hotels that are in the Roland Park area of Baltimore, MD, as they are the closest to The Bryn Mawr School.
