My Dear Sista ~ Our Moment of Hope

My Dear Sista – This VIRTUAL forum is for African American Women and Women of Color designed to be a safe place for US to share what we have seen and have experienced over the past several months.

We did something similar to this in June to speak to African American Women relative to all the things that were going on in the country… where we provided a safe place for black women to express their pains, fears and concern around the social unrest in our country…. We realize that we needed to provide another session for all Women of Color.

This FREE event will focus on BUILDING BRIDGES AMONGST WOMEN and MOVING FORWARD!!

Unlike the VOICES ACROSS AMERICA this platform is designed for African American Women and Women of Color who in many ways have been made to feel left out, marginalized, devalued, and forgotten. With the current condition of the USA and our first Woman VP President elect we want to take this time to capitalize on EMPOWERMENT!!! Empowerment for WOMEN – Increasing Capacity!! – Redefining Leadership!!! Encouraging Vision!!!

Join Us to BRREATHE: BE empowered and encouraged, RELEASE and RESET old mindsets, ENGAGE in meaningful conversations, ACQUIRE your power and position, by TALKING about your feelings and concerns, to HEAL your heart and EMBRACE the authentic you!

Session Topics:
Building from the Inside Out
Managing Through the Mind Games
Leading from Your Inner Peace
Maximizing Your New Capacity for Success
Creating a FUN Space to Jump & Leap (enjoying your free time)
