Black, Indigenous and Women of colour experience racism in many ways. These experiences can lead to an experience of trauma, specifically related to experiences due to race.
As women, we can actively reclaim our identity through engaging in activities that help us feel empowered, that gives us spaces to talk about our experiences, and that can allow us to heal from these experiences.
To help you on your journey, we developed a mentorship program specifically aimed at support women achieve their potential in multiple ways, on a personal, professional, and intersectional level.
