Welcome to The Breakroom. Have a cup of coffee with us and discover what it takes for women to create better lives through meaningful work. In The Breakroom, you will find everything about women and work except the gossip. Come to The Breakroom to hear personal stories, to get the facts, to understand the challenges and struggles, to be inspired and enlightened – and, hopefully, to connect with the people and a small, but powerful place in Baltimore that will change your life for good.
A new blog post will be ready for you each month, and I invite your comments. From time to time, I’ll include a photograph of the world-in-miniature that exists in the two-and-a-half miles between my house and Caroline Center, Somerset Street and also in the West Baltimore neighborhoods that are part of my frequent travels to Caroline Center, Gibbons Commons. Everything that can happen happens here.
