ANNOUNCEMENT: A few weeks ago #Buildupwomen Series announced our #partnership & #allyship with Mommy Connections Ottawa & Area to discuss a topic that is very dear to my heart.

We decided to develop a virtual Healing Circle.

Pregnancy loss/ Miscarriage is still a taboo subject and often not spoken about, leaving many women to grieve in silence.

Our next series event is called - Let's talk about the "M" word. This series was built to help break the silence and build a virtual community to support women through normalizing conversations around Pregnancy loss & Miscarriage.

Please consider joining us on Wednesday, May 19th at 8pmEST for an evening of connecting, healing and hoping.

Yesterday, marked the first live series event of #Buildupwomen Season 2 and #bellletstalk day! I had the honour of moderating the #Powerofallyship conversation with five inspiring #allies including Jenn Harper, Camille Dundas, Cassie Myers (She/Her), Candies Kotchapaw & Wanda K. Deschamps.

This was one of the best takeaways "This isn't about you or me as individuals. The most important first step to #allyship is to put your ego aside which otherwise prevents us from diving into these conversations" - Jenn Harper well said!

What's next on Buildupwomen? STAY TUNED!

Thank YOU for supporting & nominating the series 🙂

MY STORY:

I launched Buildupwomen Series when I was laid off during #Covid19.

My WHY is very simple, I wanted to create a platform to address societal impacts & unaddressed matters affecting several women pre/during/ post #covid19. I wanted to have a support system to inspire/get inspired, learn from, provide resources for action, have a diverse & inclusive representation, have an #unfiltered / #unedited conversation & build each other UP!
I can't wait to kick start Buildupwomen Series: Season 2 in 2021!

The term #Diversity & #Inclusion have been written into corporate policies, HR manuals and even project proposals; but is it really being practiced & actioned out within organizations and up to what extent?

How often do organizations openly talked about it within the workplace?

What MUST organizations do, in order to build an actively anti-racist and inclusive work environment?
