Holding Space: An Anti-Racism Community Circle (Mobilize Women Week)


Fri, Jun 25, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT

Join us for a safe, impactful community circle for Black women and allies of the Black community as we discuss wielding privilege for good and effectively talking about allyship with non-Black peers.

Fri, Jun 25, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT

The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others have recently reignited the conversation around systemic racism and police brutality in America. For those in the Black community, this conversation is nothing new. We are constantly faced with the realities of these issues on a daily basis, atop of the rest of the noise of everyday life.

But keeping these conversations alive, despite the noise, is how we move forward. Supporting each other in these conversations is how we heal. Ellevate will continue to hold space for the Black women in our community to do so.

Attending Black Women:

Ellevate Network invites the Black women of our community to come together and discuss the issues that we face and to provide each other with support. The handpicked Black community and thought leaders will facilitate small group discussions about any and everything that affects our lives in today's climate.

Attending Allies:

At this special Holding Space event, we invite allies of the Black community to hear from the Black women of the Ellevate community and other anti-racist experts. It is our hope that allies can discuss ways to wield privilege for good and effectively discuss the roles they play in solidarity when there are only non-Black faces in the room.

It's time to mobilize.

Change doesn’t happen magically. The world doesn’t become inclusive by flipping a switch. It takes work, it takes leaders, it takes action. It takes you.

In a world where feminism can’t exist without intersectionality, where passive allyship is no longer good enough, where we embrace not just our careers but for our whole selves… our conversations can’t be the same as they were years ago. Why should we settle for anything less than equal?

Through the course of five days and 15+ sessions, you’ll hear thought-provoking discussions from diverse perspectives and leave with action-oriented solutions to tackle some of today’s biggest challenges in your workplace and communities. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet other leaders in business, media, sports, politics, and more who, like you, want to use their influence and social capital for equality.
