MIA Doll
This little doll in Mary Griggs Burke’s 12-room dollhouse sparked a big conversation about race and representation at Mia in 2018. We know that this is an intense time as we grapple with how to live Doll in Mary Griggs Burke’s Dollhouse together in a diverse democratic society. Joanne Platt and BOND invite you to join them in an artistic, cultural discourse that will surely stimulate thought for new and challenging ideas.

Describing the tour, Joanne remarks “ …many artists are deeply committed to creating works of art which not only address pressing social issues, but also change the way we perceive the world. Powerful and persuasive art can challenge our understanding of the world in which we live and how we operate within it. Socially-engaged art can ignite outrage and demands for change, or provide a platform for reflection, community building, and collaboration.”

On our tour today, we will explore artworks that comment on the need for change, and that perhaps will ignite the spark for change that is present in us all.

Judy Mares

Our guest speaker, Judy Mares, will lead us in an educational forum focused on Demystifying the Language of Finance. We will learn about the basics of important financial statements, the balance sheet and the income statement (assets and liabilities). She will explain a Fiduciary and the roles of financial advisors. An understanding of the language and construction of these terms will help in the navigation of our personal financial positions, planning for life transitions and provide us with a better understanding of investment terms and strategies.

Judy’s experience as a Chief Investment Officer of corporate retirement plans spanned almost 5 decades across several Fortune 500 corporations. Judy’s bonus career was working for the Obama Administration as Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Employee Benefits Security Administration and the Department of Labor.

Do not miss this powerful program with a dynamic and accomplished master in the consulting and strategic planning arena! There will be ample time for comments and questions after the presentation.
