THRIVVE: Group Coaching Program for Black Professional Women
September 12 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
THRIVVE is a group coaching program for professional Black women, facilitated by two coaches who understand the challenges associated with navigating careers as Black women. Our goal is to provide a safe space for participants to explore how their racial identity shows up at work and offer support as they navigate racial inequities while creating a vision for their professional and personal life.
Each week we’ll explore topics related to personal development and growth (see program outline below). Pre-work and homework will encourage self-reflection and application of weekly lessons. Sessions are designed to promote connection between group members through sharing experiences and encouraging growth. At least twenty minutes of each session will be dedicated to live coaching.
