My Identity, My Wellness: Connection & Dialogue

by She Grows We Grow


We are excited to invite you to an intimate dialogue with other women of color. The goal of this event is to bring #WoC together to engage in a conversation about how our identities and sense of self play into our overall wellness and healing while acknowledging systematic barriers to this process.

The journey through self exploration is a long one, it brings to the surface many questions. At this gathering we will explore how this manifests in our daily lives, shaping a new narrative for ourselves in the process!

We'll have guest speakers of various backgrounds & healing modalities to complement this conversation as we tie together what it means to define our identity as a woman of color & how we weave it into our healing journey. We hope to generate #awareness, #connection & overall #community !
