GET READY TO BLOOM WITH
THE ROOTED COLLABORATIVE IN
CO- CONSPIRATOR APPLICATION
Doing The Work is a journey; not a destination.
At the Rooted Collaborative, we know that having a space that centers on the lived experience of Black women in the social sector is critical to the health of the sector. We’ve also learned that access to power and shifting power dynamics so more women are visible leaders in the sector means we have some collective work to do.
That’s why we always want to do our part in ensuring that compelling, important conversations and educational opportunities are front and center in everything we do. At this year’s Rooted Retreat: BLOOM, we’ve designed immersive workshops for white advocates + co-conspirators who wish to instigate change through Anti-Racism and Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) strategies within their organizations, businesses, and social circles.
You’ll have the opportunity to work with JEDI Leadership Coach and Facilitator, Jillian “Mama J” Love, on your personal action plan to advance this work in ways that align with your personal and professional development pathway.
