Anyone knows of any mentorship programs for women of color in media? I live in NYC and would love to get involved in one. Have a good weekend!

Hi all! Not sure if you’re aware but there’s a challenge created by Sharon Chuter, founder of Uoma Beauty, called Pull Up for Change. The goal is to hold accountable the same beauty companies w/ statements of solidarity/support for the black community, to also “pull up” w/ their diversity stats on their entire brand and reveal how many black and POC employees they have, most especially at executive / senior leadership levels. Post continued in comments ..

Check out GirlTrek's 21 Day Black History Bootcamp. Each day we celebrate one our foremothers. This really has been a soothing salve to soul. Link in comments.

ALL WOMEN ARE WHITE - In conversations about gender bias & sexism, white women’s concerns are prioritized over all others. ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE MEN - In conversations about racial bias & racism, Black men’s concerns are prioritized. Black women STOP expending energy for people who aren’t concerned about you. Use your energy for yourselves.

I rejoined this bowl today to apologize to all of the Black women in this bowl for an argument that I got into months ago. I responded to someone’s post about being deemed aggressive at work saying that all women can experience this. I now realize that I was no better than the “All Lives Matter” people and for that I apologize. I didn’t at the time think I could contribute to racism myself as a half Black woman. I am learning and will do better.

We are tired and exhausted and sad and angry... We need a break. Wine, cheese, tea, water, juice, anything and just sit talk about life have a little fun to recharge. What do you think ?

Before shutdown I really needed a hair trim but since now the ends of my hair are super curly coily, tangled and I am seeing much more hair loss in combs & brushes when I detangle. What should I do to minimize this? Should I attempt to trim my hair or wait until the salons are inevitable open? I am in NYC. Thanks ladies!!!
