The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland has released the latest episode of its podcast, Generative Spirits: Conversations with Catholic Sisters.
For the February episode, co-hosts Margaret Eigsti, senior program officer, and Rachel Drotar, Generative Spirit program coordinator, for the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, welcome Joe Black to the Generative Spirits podcast to talk about his role as program officer for health equity at the foundation. Black has longstanding relationships with members of Cleveland's Central neighborhood and strives to focus on health outcomes, particularly safety.
Prior to his role at the foundation, Black was the Central Promise Neighborhood Community investment manager, where he was responsible for supporting residents in developing and implementing transformative strategies in the Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood.
In the podcast, Black talks about his work at the foundation, how his past work has informed his current role, and the value of community relationship and voice. The podcast also explores the importance of racial equity in grantmaking, essential projects like the Reverse Ride Along, and how hope and action must go hand in hand.
Future episodes of Generative Spirits will continue to highlight the work of sisters by giving particular focus to their ministries, including the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland.
Generative Spirits: Conversations with Catholic Sisters is a Catholic Sister podcast that explores how members of Northeast Ohio congregations respond to the signs of the times in ways only sisters can - with personal insights and a collective knowledge of life and ministry over a century old. The podcast episodes take a look inside the lives of Catholic Sisters in a changing world.
The podcasts are made possible by the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland (a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System) and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and are part of the foundation's Generative Spirit initiative.
