NEXT HEY SIS!

 
 

EVENT RECAP

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

Hey Sis! is a bi-monthly community dialogue that goes beyond the usual business networking in order to examine the complex daily lives of womayn of the African Diaspora here in the greater Austin area. There are no official speakers or panelists on a stage. Instead, we offer an intimate safe space to ask questions, share knowledge and grow together through meaningful dialogue with our community. Attendees are encouraged to reflect on their own personal experiences related to a specific discussion topic and explore issues together in an open forum.

 

All are welcome to support and share the event, however, this particular space is exclusively for womayn of the African Diaspora.

HEY SIS TESTIMONIALS

I didn't realize how much I needed my last Hey Sis discussion until I arrived. To have a safe space dedicated to a shared dialogue with such vibrant women of color is incredibly nourishing. I left laughing, inspired and wanting more connections like this in my life!
