Wednesday 9 August 
Woman Unite and Thrive 

Hosted by Shrooq Memar, 'Advice by Shrooq'

Join us for a presentation and discussion that will centre around the empowering concept of Black women coming together to grow together. This powerful idea emphasizes the strength and potential that can be harnessed when Black women unite and support one another in various aspects of life.

When Black women join forces, they can create a nurturing and encouraging environment that fosters personal and professional growth. Through mentorship, networking, and sharing experiences, they can learn from each other's journeys, inspire each other, and provide valuable insights that lead to individual and collective advancement.

This collaborative approach can have a profound impact on different spheres, including entrepreneurship, leadership, education, and personal development. By pooling resources and expertise, Black women can overcome challenges, break through barriers, and achieve their goals more effectively.

Moreover, supporting one another can help break down societal stereotypes and gender biases, promoting a more inclusive and equitable society. The idea of Black women coming together to grow together celebrates diversity, encourages mutual respect, and challenges the notion of competition between us. 


The concept of Black women coming together to grow together represents a powerful force that can drive positive change, elevate women's voices, and pave the way for a more empowered and united future.  Join us in the national Black Women's Networking & Empowerment Circle Newham.
