March 3, 2018 | Huston-Tillotson University


The WOAD Summit is a premier conference centering the voices of womayn of the African Diaspora, bringing together womayn from every field and passion to engage in a day of healing, love, and acceptance, along with co-conspirators (men and Eurocentric individuals) who want to learn how to better support them.


The WOAD Summit is about recentering the conversation about womayn of the African Diaspora from womayn of the African Diaspora.


With over 300 tickets sold in 2017, the WOAD Summit is focused on connections, experience and healing, where womayn of the African Diaspora connect with one another uninhibited by oppression allowing womayn to be free.

Join us in Austin as we meet, connect and learn.



"Counter Balance has refocused the conversation around healing. There is untapped power in that."



The conference will consist of panels, presentations and interactive break-out sessions.
