Our Founder was a part of 100’s of black women invited to be a part of the Own Network new series entitled “Black Women Own The Conversation” After that unforgettable experience she decided to meet with a group of friends and women who were a part of the TV taping; to continue the conversation. After the 1st meeting the women encouraged her to do this monthly. She knew it was a tremendous need when some of the women expressed how they felt Black Women were disappearing. And even though we had come a long way and now had a seat at the table, our voices were still silenced.
That one meetup group turned into a high demand monthly event that brought millennials to baby boomers together to have those real-life conversations about Health & Wellness, Finance, Continuing Education, Business, Love & Relationships, Corporate Frustration and more. But we couldn’t just have conversations without education. Each month a trusted industry expert was invited to help enlighten, answer questions and offer advice and resources. Because everything we do is built upon the foundation of education.
After 1yr Sisterhood Sunday experienced a digital expansion and became Sisterhood University, that took our local presence and made it global. Our previous model only provided support in-person and locally but with the expansion it now allows members to have access to our events online, trainings, virtual expos, networking, mastermind classes and more. It also provides more exposure for the business owner who will now have the opportunity to utilize our platform to advertise, host classes and become more visible through our directory.
SHU is here to empower women of color through thought provoking conversations, education and resources. We the safe space that we provide, women can be heard, be transparent and supported through comradery, coaching and uniformity.
