There are few things as satisfying as being part of a circle of women. Before entering into the roles of spouses, moms, and community leaders, we belonged to ourselves. The most brilliant aspects come from who we've always been - artists, innovators, and entrepreneurs.
On International Women's Day, we co-hosted a fabulous brunch with other women entrepreneurs in Austin to celebrate living out loud precisely as we are. The importance of communities that uplift and celebrate the achievements of women, particularly Black women, serve as encouragement in the present and as deep hope for the future.
On this day, we celebrate women following their dreams in our local communities and across the globe. Many thanks to the venue SHDW Studios and Party at the Moontower and our most gracious co-hosts:
Co-hosts facilitated every element of this production, including changing the space from an empty photo studio to an inviting dining space, the arrangement of flowers, and the food preparation and service. In addition to guests taking away the message that they are worthy, they also received a handwritten note from another guest reaffirming just that.
Our most profound honor is to continue celebrating black women in thoughtful, inviting spaces. As we close out "Melanin March" as Danielle Casseus so aptly called it, consider how you can show a black woman in your life that you see her in all of her glory.
