Afros In Tha City and Femme Wave present sheTALKS
September 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm MDT$50
Afros In Tha City and Femme Wave present sheTALKS, a premier networking event dedicated to connecting and empowering women of colour as well as individuals who identify with diverse backgrounds.
“I just got tired of being the only Black girl in the room, to be honest. In fact, you know what I’m tired of being the only woman of colour in the room period. It’s a bit strange when you are attending events and going to shows and embracing the arts and culture in Calgary. When you are actually attending events with coloured people performing and there is just you, the one Black girl in the room. I’m actually tired of paying to be uncomfortable. It breaks my heart. This is why we are putting on sheTALKS, I don’t just want a seat at the table anymore, I want many seats at the table,” says co-founder and director of Afros In Tha City, Kimberley Jev.
Attendees of sheTALKS will be privy to a 4-course meal as well as welcomed into a safe space to connect with leaders of the community who share the same stories as well as the movers and shakers and the individuals who dare to break down the walls keeping them apart from each other and from celebrating a city that is full of opportunity and a vibrant arts and entertainment scene.
