Franklyn Baker Profiled Among Maryland’s 2021 Most Admired CEOs
The Daily Record has named Franklyn Baker, United Way of Central Maryland, among the 28 honorees of Maryland’s 2021 Most Admired CEOs.
As the president and CEO of the United Way of Central Maryland, Franklyn Baker believes that running the organization through an intentional equity lens is imperative for its success. Baker has served at the helm of United Way of Central Maryland for four years and has succeeded in attracting new groups of donors to continue to help the community. Equity and growth are overarching principles at United Way, said Baker, and are embedded into every aspect of the work and culture of the organization, including employee recruitment, vendor selection, grant making, volunteerism, community engagement, and fundraising.
“At United Way, the work of equity, diversity and inclusion is not a focus mainly motivated by the social justice events of 2020; but rather, it is the critical and intentional lens through which we’ll look as long as we exist as an organization,” said Baker.
