LET’S DO US.2! Workshops


When we come together, we do amazing things.

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.

Start Writing Your Life Story in Just 15 Minutes a Day: LET’S DO US! Workshop Series June 2, 2020

You are invited to join a two-hour writing workshop with author Carolyn van Es-Vines during the LET’S DO US! series created by Black Women in Europe (®) to be a part of our solution for surviving and thriving in these uncertain COVID-19 days, weeks, and months.

Join author Carolyn van Es-Vines for an exclusive 2-hour online writing workshop on June 2, 2020 at 9 am Amsterdam time.

Carolyn van Es-Vines is the author of black and (A)broad: traveling beyond the limitations of identity, her life story that was published in 2010.

She holds a Master’s degree in Latin American literature from the University of Maryland in the US. She left her career in academia to focus on her young family and to develop her writing skills. She ran an award-winning blog called Black and Abroad, wrote for The Local Expat, a newspaper in The Hague, and regularly contributes articles for the well-being section of ACCESS, a Dutch-based magazine for expats.

Carolyn has qualified as a Certified Professional Life Coach. As part of her coaching model she has developed a life-story writing program to help her clients reflect on where they come from and most importantly how that impacts where they are right now. She has led many workshops on life-story writing in companies like ACCESS The Hague and Shell Outpost.

Carolyn was raised in the US and has lived in the Netherlands for over twenty years with her Dutch husband. Together they have two daughters, one son, two cats, and five chickens. In her spare time she likes working out, playing the piano, and is wild about her Happy Planner!

Registration for her two hour workshop is required and is limited to 100 participants.
