The Maryland Women's Heritage Center plays a vital role in telling the stories that often go unheard but so desperately need to be heard. They do so with great sensitivity to the diverse population of Maryland and to living their mission. It is the place to go for information on the amazing women of Maryland.

The MWHC&M is the first of its kind in the country. It is a true collaboration focused on celebrating that which makes our country stronger - our diversity. It is a resources for girls and women of all ages to learn about the women who paved the way today. Since we all stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us, it is important for the history, stories, traditions, and memories to be memorialized and shared. It is part of our story. Everyone who works for and with the MWHC&M is a volunteer - it is a true labor of love.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the number of people who came together to make the opening of the temporary space possible was incredible. Most importantly to me was the impact on the students who were working the event. They expressed amazement at the roles that women in MD have played

I have visited the Women's Heritage Center and Museum and seen several of its projects, including work with students and adults across Maryland. There is no other parallel in the USA and this one, should wisely serve as a model for other states. Rarely are the categories of diversity so well reflected in a seamless and user-friendly manner. If this center wasn't able to thrive, we would quickly lose and perhaps not ever reclaim this HERstory.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get matched funding. from big money groups; provide financial security so work is not contingent on volunteers' expertise and good will.

As a member of the development committee and Administrator for the Maryland Women's Heritage Center, I am honored to be able to work alongside the most dedicated, passionate and professional people in the world. Everyone involved in creating this, first of its kind, Center and Museum is committed to establishing the first comprehensive state-based center and museum of its kind in the nation. The mission of the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center is to preserve the past, understand the present, and shape the future by recognizing, respecting, and transmitting the experiences and contributions of Maryland women and girls of diverse backgrounds and regions.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Since my association with the Maryland Women's Heritage Center & Museum began back in 2007, my knowledge of Maryland women's historic and present day contributions has increased 100 fold. The history I didn't learn in school, I'm learning now.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise enough funds to move the Center into larger, permanent quarters and to have enough display space to house all of our historical treasures.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

My ability to be on the ground-floor of helping to create this exciting and much needed Center and Museum.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Educated, passionate, proud and caring about what they do, in whatever capacity they serve, the MWHC&M.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Pursue its mission to build a larger facility to accomodate more meeting space, a performance & art venue, space for all artifacts, documents representing Maryland Women's history

Ways to make it better...

My only wish is that the MWHC&M continues its mission of educating, displaying and being a bigger and better historical resource future generations.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Space required to allow for growth and much needed operating funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The MWHC&M model is a program that every state in the U.S. should replicate. Every state has a history of women that have not been recognized for all their service and their many untold contributions on behalf of their home state.

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center, a strong non-profit, honors so many individuals and groups of women by Adding HERstory to HIStory to tell OUR story . It brings together community members and educators and families and organizations to commemorate the contributions of women and girls of the past and present (and future). Many programs recently have involved diverse multicultural participants of a wide range of ages -- from elementary school and Girl Scouts to Red Hats and World War II Veterans. and Rosie the Riveters So much is learned and shared, and resources are available to learn about the Unsung Heroines in our lies, as well as the more "famous" women. The current displays focus women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and expand our horizons and present outstanding role models! role models. As an educator and women's history and equity advocate, I highly value all that the Center offers and provides.

This is a nurturing non-profit that has heart, intelligence and open to everyone who cares about women's role in history and its's leadership today. It is inclusive and over the years of my engagement I have seen it grow in depth and promise for future generations.

It is not so much the changes, but with more financial support it could do the big picture things it aspires to doing as it keeps its focus also on the relationships that it fosters.

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center is a unique place that brings women from across the state to gather and support the mission and also be part of the evolving history of women. I believe there is something for everyone, especially, men and young boys, who are welcome to learn and to honor the women in their lives as well. The MWHC is an open and welcoming place for children to senior adults to learn and become more knowledgeable about some extraordinary women and to find the extraordinary in themselves. Together, we can grow this organization and serve the community through its program and vision. It may need more financial support, which non-profit does not, but it does not lack heart or support for all women to be the best they can be and find where they can get involved.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have met some women I would not have if I have not been involved. I have learned more about the women who came before us..their struggles and deeds. I have been able to honor my "unsung heroine" and enjoy the "can do" spirit of the women involved.

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center is an outstanding non-profit, which serves as a museum honoring women in a wide range of fields, a showcase for the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame, a home for an Unsung Heroines gallery, and also as a leadership center and gathering place to adress current issues related to women, families and communities. It provides important learning experiences in a welcoming environment for individuals of all ages and backgrounds,

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am till 4 pm at 39 W. Lexington St., Baltimore, MD.

Though the site is small it is packed with wonderful exhibits that tell the stories of Maryland Women, some notable, some unsung heroines who are not in our
history books. The first exhibit is the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame, which currently, tells the stories of 60 of the 136 Maryland Women who have been inducted into the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame. Two rotating exhibits, which in November will tell the story of Maryland Women involved in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math will be on display. One is a time line of women who were the first in the field and the other is the Women of NASA.

I was able to get a sneak peek of these two incoming exhibits and they are fantastic. The Women of NASA tells three important elements for visitors to see and understand. 1. NASA does really cool stuff. 2. That there is more to NASA than space exploration. 3. Women of all ages and cultural backgrounds who have a variety of talents and skills work at NASA in science related jobs.

I am really excited about this upcoming exhibit and hope lots of people come, see, and learn about all the fantastic things Maryland women have accomplished.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the Maryland Women's Heritage Center really grow in the past year. It is a place that is welcoming and let's women learn about the struggles of other women past and present. It is also a place where they too can share their stories providing inspiration for other visitors.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing! It is still in its learning and growing stage. It is improving weekly. It is a place that I am proud to say I am a part of in founding.

The MWHC has not just set the bar nationwide, it has done it with the best information from our past and the clearest intentions about our futures. Rarely have I visited a museum or attended events (even fundraising programs!) where the inclusive nature of the people, their professional backgrounds and their personal stories generate so much excitment. They look, act and feel like a fined tuned team-of (as Maya Angelou says) a family of friends. Although they begand more than 30 years ago, uncovering the women of Maryland's past, they are now THE group that is making history in our state!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their local materials are the best (and only?)products that tell the tales of Maryland's women. I continue to be amazed at how much I DON'T know...yet now I have a place to go.
