And Still We Rise: Six-Month Leadership Forum for Womxn of Color
September 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDTFree
And Still We Rise is a six-month leadership forum for all people who self-identify as womxn of color leaders. As womxn of color leaders, the pressures we face are enormous. Every day, we juggle the demands of caring for our families and communities while needing to constantly establish our credibility, competence, and worth in a society that devalues and marginalizes us. We often do not have the support we need to be successful in the white supremacy structures that are embedded within the organizations/groups of which we are a part. We experience high levels of stress and burnout as we do our best to push against a concrete ceiling. And frankly… we are exhausted. Yet, our leadership is needed now more than ever. How do we stay the course without sacrificing our wellness and wholeness? How do we bring our most authentic and powerful selves to the table and lead from our unique vision and values as womxn of color? These are some of the themes we will address in And Still We Rise.
