Charnell is elated to join the staff of Associated Black Charities as a Program Manager and Strategist where she will be developing anti-racist curriculum for organizations and partners, acting as facilitator and community organizer for external partnerships, and adding programming intelligence to existing initiatives within the agency. All Charnell’s efforts will be towards advancing ABC’s mission to end systematic racism and create thriving economic opportunities for Black folk.
