We are a group of women of color who love Lexington and the surrounding counties, and often find ourselves at functions, looking around the room, and realizing that we are the only ones of color. Or, we find ourselves in love with art and culture, and notice that somehow we did not end up on the guest list. We want to address 5 things with this group: 1) When you go, bring someone with you. Expose another woman of color to some of the amazing things you are doing or are a part of. 2) A safe and honest place to process what you have experienced with other women of color. 3) What to do when you are put in the position of representing women of color at an event or in your everyday life. 4) Fellowship: book clubs, coffee dates, supporting the projects of one another, girlfriend time 5) Speaker's Bureau: we are creating a list of competent speakers and training up women who want to learn to become confidant speakers, in order to offer our services to the community.

Currently, this group is by invitation only.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
