Event description

Description

Our Black Sister Network welcomes women of colour within and beyond academia who seek sisterhood, solidarity and self-empowerment and collective opportunities to challenge inequality.

Race and gender shapes the health and wellbeing of women of colour in ways that can result in disproportionate risks for illnesses like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and breast cancer.

This event is a collaborative strategy that brings together the Black Sister Network Community with Lifestyle Challenge - a steering group and blog focused on promoting healthy lifestyle choices to enable us to survive and thrive.

Familiar faces from the best-selling Black Sister Network publication Inside the Ivory Tower Dr Deborah Gabriel, Dr Jenny Douglas and Dr Elizabeth Opara are guest speakers and this event is hosted by Dr Marcia Wilson, Head of the School of Sports & Bioscience at UEL. They are joined by Black British Academics US Patron Virginia Cumberbatch, Co-Founder of the REBEL REST project at Rosa Rebellion, a platform for Black Women that promotes rest, rejuvenation and restoration.

This event provides an opportunity to prioritise our health and wellbeing with guidance from experts in a supportive environment where women of colour can share their experiences and and have fun...

Tickets to this event are £7.50 - to support our 6-week Lifestyle Challenge from 14th February to 28th March. Register to follow Dr Gabriel's Health Regime for a chance to win a cash prize of £100.
