AUTHENTICITY IS YOUR MAGIC said caribbean decent Paula Edgar yesterday evening at "the 2017 Metropolitan Black Bar Association's Women’s History Month event, 'Black Women Lawyers: Lessons in Leadership' which was conceptualized in response to the low numbers of Black women in the legal profession. The MBBA aimed for students and fellow attorneys in the legal diversity pipeline to be inspired by Black women lawyer leaders, and to shine a spotlight on the valuable contributions of Black women in the legal profession." Paula is a founding member of Caribbean Attorneys Network and a current board member of the MBBA organization.
Each woman on the panel focused on a different message and shared their remarkable stories. Speakers at the event included:
Patricia Gatling - Counsel, Winders Marx Lane & Mittendorf LLP talked about being bold for change
Erica Edwards-O'neal - Vice President, Inclusion & Diversity, New York City Economic Development Corporation talked about convincing yourself that you belong
Michele Coleman Mayes - Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, The New York Public Library talked about "You really are in charge"

LAUNCH OF OUR EMPLOYEE WORKSHOP, OUR FIFTH TRAINING MODULE: "A mental health awareness workshop was conducted by The Caribbean Voice (TCV) organisation on Saturday at the office of Guyana Times/TVG/Radio Guyana, Industrial Site, Ruimveldt. Employees from the companies were the beneficiaries of the comprehensive forum.
The workshop was in accordance with the mandate of the Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), which is to spread awareness on mental health and illnesses as well as matters relating to suicide." http://guyanatimesgy.com/guyana-timestvgradio-guyana-employees-benefit-from-mental-health-training/
The Attorney-at-Law pointed out that the reasons for non-appearance of victims in court for the prosecution of these matters include fear of retribution, the desire to remain in the relationship, fear of testifying in court, domestic violence victims’ experience with the legal system is that there is no sympathy or empathy and mandatory prosecution which may not reflect the wishes of the victim. #TCV
