Event Details

The workplace can be an aggressive place for women of color. We’re constant overachievers, excelling and shattering stereotypes and pipelines designed to “keep us in our place.” But still, we have barriers to overcome.


Some of us go above-and-beyond through sheer force and sacrifice but haven’t found a place that feels like home. Others have snagged the “dream job,” only to find it riddled with inefficiencies or problematic practices. Still, others face outright racism, bigotry, and abuse, but don’t leave because these jobs are our livelihood.


These scenarios leave you with two choices: shut up and take it OR speak out and become a target. Both circumstances leave you questioning your sanity because we have been trained to work hard, fight, and to bend ourselves backward in the name of achievement. But before you burn out or make yourself sick from going above and beyond: let's take a breath, reflect, and stop to remind ourselves of who we are, what is our real value, and why we are here.


In Our Relationship with Ourselves, we will unravel your mind, body, and spirit. We will work to identify your skills, your strengths, and your passions. You are worthy of your best effort and you can be free!

 

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Discuss ways to deal with difficult situations in toxic environments
  • Discern what works for you and what you need to leave behind
  • Regain confidence and the knowledge and understanding that you have options, choice, and the ability to take back your future
  • Create a plan for self-fulfillment and move past the trauma
  • Leverage the community we have built through this series of workshops

 

*Location details will be sent with confirmation email.
