Last year our community came together. I put a call out and you answered! We ran 15 FREE workshops in May & June 2020. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we wrote, we learned to take care of our hair, organize our days, balance working from home with life, explored the entrepreneurial mindset, and more.
This year, after everything we experienced and learned last year, we have curated 4 workshops for mind, body, soul, and career. While we can’t offer these workshops for free again this year (sisters have financial obligations), we are offering value for money/time/expertise.
We hope you value this opportunity to come together, grow together and learn together from some amazing Black Women with ties to Europe.
Mark your calendar to save the dates, times, and budget the fee where noted, and be on the lookout for more information and registration to start soon.
