2017

The Black Women’s Empowerment Institute is a bimonthly, in-person workshop series, for Black women and by Black women in Tallahassee, Florida. Each workshop will last approximately two hours each and will only be held on once, on one day – such as a Saturday – during the weekend. The Institute seeks to combat the disparities in health, wealth, and life outcomes for Black women via empowerment through education. The workshops will provide an intimate, safe space for Black women to learn from other Black women; the facilitators of these workshops will be Black women who are regarded as experts and/or licensed as professionals in their respective fields. At the end of the year, the Black Women’s Empowerment Institute will culminate in an Annual Black Women Empowering Black Women Summit – in turn, this annual summit will kick off the following year’s Institute.
