Identity in the Everyday Hustle: Navigating Workplaces


WEDNESDAY | April 7, 2021 | 6 PM-8 PM | VIA ZOOM
Free to all Womxn, Femmes, and Non-Binary Persons of Color

For most of us, our parents taught us to work hard and give it our all to achieve a worthy life. We grow up and enter the workforce, execute these principles, and in the hustle, we can become consumed by an oppressive system often leading us to lose ourselves, suffering mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. As working professionals, no one prepares us for the work environment, and how to handle spaces not inclusive of Womxn, Femmes, and Non-Binary BIPOC. Together in this workshop, we will explore the hustle DNA of Womxn of Color, why it is essential to speak up for yourself, and tools and suggestions for how to protect your wellbeing and be your truest self in the workplace.

Preparation & Supplies Needed for this Workshop:

  • Set up your device in a private and comfortable location.

  • Have available a notepad and writing utensil.

  • Bring an affirmation/saying/quote/word/picture that you use to lift your spirits.

Allies/Accomplices Please be Advised:

We appreciate your solidarity and indeed, hope for your support. We ask that you respect that meetings and our outings (unless otherwise noted) are only open to women of color. For the time being, please increase your own understanding and participation in justice and equity work and consider supporting our group financially. No amount is too small and we truly appreciate your support.
