We present a variety of events that improve understanding and help attendees become better allies as we celebrate the diversity that characterizes the Manitoban.
We are dedicated to raising awareness and promoting the role and contribution of Black women in our community and their right to live and develop fully in society. Networking and professional development events provide Black women with opportunities to enhance their knowledge and connect with other women in the community.
