WE’VE COLLABORATED WITH
The future is trauma informed because it is trauma impacted
Dr. L. Elizabeth Lincoln defines trauma-informed care as “practices that promote a culture of safety, empowerment, and healing”.
We are on a mission to uplift those who are affected by mental health conditions, Adverse Childhood Experiences and trauma, and to encourage them not to give up hope on social mobility and flourishing. We believe that by bringing together people navigating these issues while managing careers, we can create a community of professionals that doubles as a safe space for people to heal while they hustle.
We are redefining #BlackExcellence by empowering people to own their whole stories while they lean into their skills, talent and potential, through first helping them feel safe in the world and less alone in their experiences.
