Calling all creative, ambitious and badass professional Women of Color!
This is for all self-identified WoCs, including cis, gay, straight, non-binary and trans womxn. This is a San Francisco based meet up.
I started this group first and foremost to find each other--because, let's be real, it's hard to find each other in SF these days! Let's meet, build sisterhood and learn from each other.
We welcome all leaders AND aspiring leaders, from all industries, career levels and roles. Whether you're a people manager or an individual contributor, you're still a growing leader, voice and talent.
Join to make real connections with other creative, intelligent, inspiring and authentic women like you. This is a space for us to meet and discuss the real challenges WoCs face to advance and thrive in the workforce, and for us to exchange business ideas, support, opportunities and strengthen our collective leadership.
Also, this is a place to celebrate in all our AWESOMENESS and success together! We'll nurture curiosity, courage and empowerment in all our meetings.
If you're: ...excited about growing relationships, communication skills and overall personal/professional development
...all about keepin' it real and having bold, fun and thought-provoking conversations
...looking for community and sisterhood with other WoCs
Then this meetup is for you!
Monthly events can include: round table discussions (probably how we'll start!), happy hours, tea & coffee hours, brunch, dinner, writing sessions, workshops/speakers--we can get creative together.
Sisters, we have a new event!
Open, collaborative, real, effective and fun! I encourage us all to be learners and teachers.
Understanding, growing and using our unique voice as leaders! Many sisters said they're looking to grow confidence and leadership, so let's open up to what challenges we can help with and collectively share our lessons, tips and actions that can be put into practice.
This is intended to be an intimate, fun and effective round table discussion to build connections, sisterhood and take away new perspectives on what it means to be a WoC leader.

Covo co-working space. The specific room is TBD based on their availability, so we may or may not be cozied up together, depending on our turnout and room provided.
Request for attendees:
Kindly support our patrons by buying a bevvy (wine, beer, tea, coffee, soda, whatever floats your boat!), in exchange for the room they're giving us once a month. They also have snacks and food for purchase.
Why the request?
Covo's badass and has always supported many cultural and inclusive events I've attended. When I contacted them about the group their CEO was so excited to support Women of Color by providing a monthly room for us (so expect to keep coming here!)--their only request was to ask for patronage to their cafe or Tap Lounge upon usage of the space.
Special note: Covo is honoring our previous 6-8pm booking, even if their closing hours have been moved to 7pm now. We'll start wrapping up and heading out at 7:50. :]
