About the event
The "strong" black woman has to be the ugliest and most misleading title a person can give a black woman. It's a burden placed on black women that we all didn't ask for but were with pride. As we move past Q1 and continue into Q2, many women are starting to feel exhausted, overwhelmed, or burnout.
In this community talk, we've invited Lola Russell, LSCW-C, Clinical Therapist at Inspiring & Empowering Change, LLC to talk about burnout in women of color from a clinical standpoint.
Lola Russell is a licensed clinical therapist with 16 years of experience. She is the founder and CEO of Inspiring & Empowering Change, LLC, a private practice located in Baltimore, MD.

She is a licensed certified social worker clinical, and she attends yearly educational training to strengthen and broaden her skills and knowledge base.
Ms. Lola Russell, LCSW-C, Clinical Therapist will be our guest speaker on Thursday, April 28, 2022. Ms. Russell is a clinical expert in the field of mental health.
