Event description
Building powerful communities to create a future for where womxn of color lead at the highest levels across all sectors.

About this Event

“Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign. But stories can also be used to empower, and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people. But stories can also repair that broken dignity.”

― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The future of work is one with womxn of color at the center.

Join The Riveter and Future for Us for The State of Womxn of Color Roadshow, an evening to tell audacious stories of womxn of color at work, accompanied by an overview of the data, insights and solutions. This collaboration provides a platform for rising and established womxn of color professionals to share their experiences and next step strategies as they build powerful communities to create a future for where womxn of color lead at the highest levels across all sectors.

The State of Womxn of Color - Minneapolis tour stop features Future for Us’ State of Womxn of Color data presentation and a panel of phenomenal local leaders who will share personal experiences, discuss how womxn of color can navigate the world of work, and leave us with insights on negotiation, building community, and true allyship.

Minneapolis one of the most diverse cities in the Midwest, the city is a haven for immigrants, and is home to America’s largest population of Somalis (ahem, Rep. Illhan Omar) and second-largest Vietnamese population, as well as the largest Hmong population outside of Laos. Minneapolis has experienced wealth and success while still ensuring accessible housing, jobs, education, and social mobility for its poorer residents. We all stand to learn from the city’s leaders about how to grow while remaining inclusive, and embracing diversity, and ensure that across all sectors, womxn of color are in visible leaders roles across the Twin Cities.

Allies and champions are invited to come together to support womxn of color professionals through community, culture and career development - to create equity of access and opportunities for advancement. Together we can take actions to advance womxn of color and explore what it takes to build intentional communities for and with womxn of color, examine how allies can strengthen their cultural competency muscle, and explore what true workplace collaboration can make possible!

Why womxn and not womxn?

The spelling of womxn is meant to show inclusion of trans, nonbinary, womxn of color, womxn with disabilities and all other marginalized genders. Both The Riveter and Future for Us use this spelling to indicate that our spaces and platform are open to anyone who identifies as such. We respect people of all genders, identities, and the use of pronouns that best identify an individual.
