Black Women’s Affinity Group

We invite all Black women to join us in co-creating an ongoing Black Women’s Affinity group. We’ll be meeting once a month (on the 3rd Thursday from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. ET) to provide a brave and safe space for Black women to share resources and knowledge, process experiences, hone our skills to combat systemic oppression, network, validate one another, and generate joy. Our sessions will be led by A Call to Men Trainers Dr. Shanita Brown, Annika Leonard, M.B.A., and Afua Addo, MHC.

This opportunity is currently open to the public! We are so excited to build something beautiful together – and we’re deeply grateful to have you all with us.
