How did this summit come to be? What impact is it making? Is it sustainable through time to keep making an impact on people’s lives? Athena unpacks what drives this organization, how it continues to resonate with its members, and ultimately what healing looks like for womxn/women of color in today’s society.
Both Harpinder and Irene share a Marketing background and are entrepreneurs themselves in health and wellness. Harpinder is a Sikh-Buddhist Punjabi-American yoga and meditation teacher, while Irene is a Taiwianese-Canadian asana facilitator and intuitive tarot reader.
Founded in 2020, Womxn of Color Summit is an equitable community organization focused on creating safe and inclusionary spaces for womxn/women-identifying and nonbinary people of color where they can share stories, build connections, and make impactful change. Their goal with the Womxn of Color Summit starts with copy: writing Womxn instead of Women. A more inclusive version of what it means to be a womxn/woman in today’s society. By changing the language associated with the goal, it changes the narrative into something people can believe in and take with them.
The Womxn of Color Summit has become a platform for folks to find commonalities, meet like-minded individuals, and give each other a voice in the crowd. The organization has been so impactful on its community, the growth rate comes into question its sustainability. How can they fund the joy of healing? How can they keep this community alive for everyone to experience it and step into their full potential?
Like most journeys, this one is not only worth the adventure, it’s worth the listen.
