What we're about

Join this group us to learn, to meet other entrepreneurs with disabilities and to get inspired! We have speakers come and discuss topics like how to use social media for business, how to start a nonprofit organization and how to fundraise and other startup topics.

This is also a great opportunity to make friends and learn about other resources in the community.

As a group, we meet every third Wednesday of the month! From 1-3PM at an incubator for startups (1133 15th St NW, 12 Floor).

We also post events throughout the month that the community might be interested in.

Hope to see you at our next MeetUp.

Member Event: a workshop on sex, sensuality, and power

1875 Connecticut Ave NW

As women of color, we’re often stuck in a dichotomy of being either hypersexualized or invisible. Our relationship with our bodies is influenced by our experiences, generational histories, and what we’ve been taught to think about sex and our bodies. But where do these ideas come from, and why are they still a part of our narrative in 2019? In this workshop, we’re having an open and honest conversation about sexual self-care. In order to reach sexual freedom and learn to love, appreciate, satisfy, and care for our melanated bodies, we need to heal our relationship with sex. Learn to honor yourself, your needs and wants, and to reclaim and enjoy your body. We’re decolonizing sex, one shameless conversation at a time. Learning Outcomes: In this in-person workshop, we’ll Discuss the colonization of our melanated bodies and how to decolonize sex Unpack the shame and myths surrounding sex and our beautiful bodies Heal our relationship with our bodies and sex Reconstruct what it means to be sexually empowered This workshop centers the experiences of women of color. Have questions? Check out our FAQ’s. Ticket includes workshop materials, mimosa, and light snacks.
