Sister 2 Sister (S2S) provides a culturally responsive and inclusive space for racialized and Indigenous women and girls to share, inspire, grow and celebrate one another. S2S takes an anti-oppressive, feminist and intersectional approach to our workshops and events. We draw on concepts of decolonization and Afrocentrism in our workshop development and delivery.
The objects of Sister 2 Sister include:
- Supporting and empowering racialized and Indigenous women;
- Providing racialized and Indigenous female students the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills; and
- Developing and sharing resources and tools for racialized and Indigenous female students.
My Sister's Keeper is an annual, International Women's Day event hosted by Shakira Weatherdon Consulting & Enterprises, in partnership with Heartwood Centre for Community Youth Development. Via this event, we create and hold space for racialized women; recognizing and celebrating their contributions and along with the allies who support them, explore what it means to be My Sister’s Keeper. You won't want to this miss morning of great food, spoken word, song and so much more! Tickets and more information about the March 6, 2020 IWD Breakfast Celebration can be found here.
Sister2Sister conferences will be held at St. Francis Xavier University (October 11, 2019) and Dalhousie University (March 31st, 2020).
