Join us for a community grounding and networking reception to connect with others who have been part of our community and identify as Black, Indigenous, & People of Color (BIPOC). We have spent the last nine months connecting through similar gatherings, breathwork session and other equity-centered trainings. We invite everyone, new and old colleagues to come share space with us. The main goal of this session is to provide participants with a generative and restorative experience, while also create space to network and find resources. Many of our community members are consultants, facilitators, educators and business leaders. We hope to create the conditions for collaboration, support with job searches and opportunities for consulting. Come prepared to do a little socializing and to be held in a community that has built trust during these tumultuous times.

This particular space is for BIPOC community members who are interested in building community and connecting across differences.

****We will host this event on Remo.co. You will be able to find the link in the unique Online Event Page for this event within Eventbrite.
