Greetings from the Interim Executive Director

Hello GBH Community,

My name is Robin Jenkins, and I recently joined Girl Be Heard as Interim Executive Director. I’m reaching out to extend my sincerest thanks for supporting Girl Be Heard and the communities we serve.

First, I’d like to thank Chiwoniso Kaitano for her extraordinary leadership of Girl Be Heard over the last four years. Chiwoniso has expanded programs, participation, infrastructure, and the annual budget in partnership with the incredible staff, teaching assistants, and young activists–excellent work while navigating the pandemic.

As we search for Girl Be Heard’s next permanent leader, I’ve joined to bridge this part of the organization’s journey. I’m here as both a leader and a resource for all stakeholders and to support the daily, fantastic work that continues.

I’m also excited to inform you that Girl Be Heard’s annual Mainstage show, a multi-disciplinary cumulative event showcasing our Company Members’ work this past year, will be on May 23rd and 24th. So please get your tickets–you’ll love seeing how our company members have grown and developed their ARTIVIST voices.

Thanks for all you do for the Girl Be Heard community, and I look forward to hearing from you and sharing more over the coming months.

Sincerely,

Robin Jenkins
