About Us

Conversations surrounding empowerment and generating collective impact that uplifts individuals have always been important to us.

This inspired us to start a small circle with our friends and community to create a safe space for discussing barriers, current issues and to share our personal stories with one another. In addition to having these more intimate conversations, we also want to increase the reach and impact of this initiative and this has prompted us to start a speaker series, whereby an empowering leader from a diverse range of backgrounds, including medicine, health tech, politics, etc. will come speak on a monthly basis to the group.

Our Vision

We are motivated by empowering and connecting individuals from all walks of life, and amplifying the voices of womxn and minorities.
