What we're about
Welcome to Women of Color, a Networking and Friendship Meetup in the Charlotte area. As history has shown us, Women of Color often face challenges both professionally and personally that sometimes only we can understand.
This group is a social arena in which we can discuss, vent and laugh about the many trials and tribulations we face as Women of Color. What makes a Woman of Color? We have no definition of color; Women of Color know who they are by virtue of their experiences. All nationalities are welcome! We also serve as a networking conduit for those interested in changing or starting new careers, or for those who are small business owners.
Each month we will have activities ranging from: volunteering, lunches, dinners, walks, fitness activities, theater outings, book club discussions and occasionally we will have a member open their homes for what we playfully call “home invasion night”, where members bring drinks and potluck meals to be shared with the group.
These are just a few of our activities, and we do encourage suggestions! Because of the multifaceted dynamics of our members, this our group can develop into whatever our members decide. Most of our members start out as newcomers to the Charlotte area, and find this group is a great way to build a foundation of close friends in a new city.
Some of our members have been in Charlotte all of their lives or a many years and use our group to find new activities to engage in. Whatever the reason you have decided to join or to renew your membership,
