This year, WGBH celebrated Women’s History Month by exploring women making a difference in and around Greater Boston. On March 12th, our founder and executive director Maria Vertkin was featured on a Lunch Hour Live panel with fellow female leaders in Dorchester – Teresa Maynard, Founder of Sweet Teez Bakery and Boston City Councilor Annissa Essaibi-George.

Hosted by Sue O’Connell and recorded live at the Newsfeed Cafe at the Boston Public Library, this half-hour event covered a wide variety of subjects, including the work of each panelist, the barriers that women still face in business and the nonprofit sector, and the wealth of resources and opportunities in the Dorchester neighborhood.
