Collaborators with WOC Training 7.15.2017

July 15 at 10:00 am1:30 pm

Presented by the Womxn of Color Table

We are calling on our sister allies to join us in our journey of creating sustainable and balanced leadership. We call ourselves ‘Collaborators with WOC’.  The road before us is treacherous, long, and difficult. We are coming together to summon new leadership in this new era to go about this work.  A type of leadership that is by womxn of color,  for womxn of color, and with womxn of color.  A practice that flows through our bodies with power, direction, and intentionality.  The WOC Table has redefined what it means to be collaborating with womxn of color, and we’re inviting you to join us in this process alongside white womxn that have been trained and have committed to training you.

Want to know how to be a powerful collaborator with womxn of color?

Do you identify as a white womxn – this includes transwomen, genderqueer folks, and femmes?  

Do you want a space to process and learn how to show up better for womxn of color, and in that process, show up better for yourself?

Womxn of color leadership have blessed this space, crafted its training, and unleashed its power.  This is an invitation to break the isolation, show up authentically, hold yourself and others accountable working through tensions and conflicts that will arise, gain clarity in cultivating your own power, build balanced and strong leadership across race, and analyze the personal impact different systems, especially racism and sexism, have had on you. This is a radical space-in-progress, and we thank you wholeheartedly for being willing to show up authentically and for being willing to play a crucial role in creating this vision of balanced and sustainable leadership with, by, and for WOC. We welcome you into this journey of being part of this movement in a more authentic way.

Womxn of Color – Encounter 2017

August 5 at 10:00 am4:00 pm

Presented by the Womxn of Color Table

We are setting out to elevate the emotional labor of womxn of color as the solution to what ails our policies, economy, and society.

Womxn of color are coming together to have a deeper conversation and understanding around our leadership.  We believe that if we are to resist AND sustain it is because we have engaged our intersectional lens holistically.  Come and have an experience-informed conversation on the intersections of healing, race, gender, and sexual identity. No prior training or experience necessary.  Continental breakfast, lunch, coffee, and snacks provided.  Free childcare and transportation available upon request (please use the tickets available in this form.)

We are creating a womxn of color only space.  Our rule of thumb for who is a womxn of color: if you identify in any way as “woman” or “femme” and the intentions of this group have personal meaning to you, then you are welcome here. Future opportunities for allies to enter this space will be clearly marked.
