L.Gregory Dorsey       Chairperson

Manager, Benefits/Total Rewards

My personal manifesto includes putting God first, and living life to the fullest.  As a new member of the esteemed Fertile Ground Board of Directors, I look forward to serving our mentees, as they too live their lives to the fullest, while developing into strong and confident young women.

Stephanie Mapp        Vice-Chair

Senior Manager of  Learning and Evaluation

I am excited to be a part of an organization committed to mentoring and nurturing young women of color, a population too often overlooked and undervalued.

Latoya Owens        Secretary

Business Consultant

As a Fertile Ground board member, I enjoy working with my fellow board members to develop and execute programs and activities that help expose young girls to learning opportunities they might not necessarily have the option of experiencing.  Whether it is a college campus tour, a museum visit or the opportunity to work with a mentor, I believe that Fertile Ground is helping to shape the future leaders of tomorrow, one girl at a time.

I am excited about Fertile Ground because I am the product of its efforts. As a first generation college graduate I can personally relate to a community that sowed value and knowledge into me. Surrounded by successful mentors growing up aided me in my journey to become the first to graduate college and the first lawyer in my family. I know the Fertile Ground formula works because it has worked for me. And I am excited to help shape and form the next generation of successful women.

Kareemah Lewis

Assistant Professor of Elementary Education

I am excited about Fertile Ground because it is a space that provides opportunities for girls to find socio-emotional and educational empowerment, to (re)define who they are.
