Sister Circle: A Gathering for Black, Brown and Women of Colour

October 25, 2022 @ 18:00 - 20:00

As Black, Brown and women of colour, sometimes, we might feel that we exist in a world, with systems and structures that were not built for us. So, we navigate, negotiate, cover or fit in, because it makes us feel safe. Nonetheless, it can be very isolating.

The Sister Circle is a non judgmental space created exclusively for Black, Brown and Women of Colour to hold space and safely explore their experiences, feelings and emotions in a supportive environment where you neither have to explain or defend your reality.

The session, facilitated by Chisom Udeze, is an opportunity to find connection and solidarity; a space to speak your truth, share your feelings to whatever degree you feel comfortable, celebrate your wins, simply listen, or find solace in the company of other women.

This session is for Black, Brown and women of colour who are: strong, loud, quiet, mothers, shy, bold, working, stay-at-home, entrepreneurs, students, job-seekers, multi-taskers… we invite you to come as you are. You are magical, worthy and needed.

We invite you to make and take S P A C E in authentic connection, to benefit from the wisdom of your sisters as we connect over stories, challenges and triumphs. Sisters’ Circle is a much needed space for women of colour to exhale, and connect with people who truly see and hear you, as you are.

When you leave this session, we hope you will feel loved, seen, heard and empowered. We look forward to seeing you.** Please note that in order to create a safe and supportive space, we will “close the doors” and begin promptly at 18:05. Please arrive on time. **
