Standing in Our Power 7th Anniversary

What is SiOP and what is the significance of the work? We are living in a moment where women of color, particularly Black women, are leading the way – from founding two of the boldest movements of our time, #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo, to running cutting-edge non-profit organizations and excelling in entrepreneurship. Women of color are running for office in force, flexing political muscle at the ballot box, embodying equitable practices and trailblazing an intersectional analysis.

Yet, our leadership and success has a shadow side. Women of Color are often overworked, in crisis and burning out. We receive the lowest pay and live in asset poverty. Unresolved trauma and internalized oppression limit our confidence at times. We benefit from living and leading in healthier ways, and doing so in greater solidarity. Still, there is little support for our wellness, empowerment and sustainability. And, we get the least amount of philanthropic and capital investment funding.

SiOP addresses this by creating liberating spaces for deep personal and interpersonal healing and transformation. We build connective tissue between leaders to foster interdependence, and mobilize increased resources collaboratively. We catalyze radical imagination, transcending our conditioned tendencies and limiting beliefs, in order to co-create fearless, audacious and bold visions and take empowered action.
