More information about THRIVVE…
Are you a Black woman who is striving for success in your career, but you are being met with obstacles? According to Lean In’s The State of Black Women in Corporate America, Black women are having the worst experience of all employees in the workforce. Contributing factors include being underrepresented in leadership roles, experiencing a wider range of microaggressions, receiving less support from direct managers, and having little to no access to senior leaders. Though many organizations have ramped up their diversity and inclusion efforts over the last few years, few are addressing the specific barriers that are holding Black women back.
THRIVVE is an empowerment circle for professional Black women, facilitated by two coaches who understand the challenges associated with navigating careers as Black women. ICF certified coaches Asila Calhoun and Joelle LaGuerre will provide a safe space for you to explore how your racial and gender identity show up at work. Asila and Joelle have developed a program to offer you support to create an empowering vision for your professional and personal life as you navigate inequities. Sessions are designed to promote connection between group members through sharing experiences and encouraging growth.
