EmpowerHer – (Free 4 week program)

November 25, 2023 @ 11:00 am - December 16, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

Join us for a transformative and empowering workshop designed exclusively for African, Caribbean, Black,  racialized women and femmes- EmpowerHer: Celebrating Our Essence. This immersive and supportive gathering is dedicated to honouring our bodies, embracing our sexuality, and fostering a safe and nurturing space to engage in candid conversations about the unique challenges that ACB (African, Caribbean, Black) racialized women and femmes face when navigating the world in their bodies. Let’s explore the meaning of sexuality through a racial lens. 

Creating a Safe Space: EmpowerHer is a haven where trust, respect, and empathy are paramount. We encourage open and honest dialogues about the challenges we encounter daily while navigating the world in our bodies. Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences, fears, shame, and triumphs without fear of judgment.

Empowerment Workshops: EmpowerHer offers empowering workshops and exercises that aim to boost self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-expression. We will explore avenues for personal growth and empowerment, equipping participants with tools to navigate their journeys with strength and grace.

EmpowerHer: Celebrating Our Essence is not just a workshop; it’s a lifestyle. We invite you to join us on this empowering journey of self-discovery, self-love, and self-empowerment. Together, we will embrace our unique identities, overcome challenges, and celebrate the strength and resilience that define Black and racialized women and femmes. Let’s rise, thrive, and empower each other!
