11:15 am – Divinity of the Black Women
Speaker: Amenti Francis,
We are all familiar with the stereotype of the angry black woman, that caricature that has misrepresented the true identity of the black woman and diminished her capacity to be feminine, vulnerable and a nurturing element. We will explore the affects, the legacies and the ways in which we can actively move to prevent the problems this can cause us now and in future. We will explore the spiritual side of the black woman and how our truest representation is tied in with our divinity.

Speakers: Dr Victoria Lane, Sandra Johnson,
Black women and women from Ethnic communities have a higher percentage of being likely to suffer from poor mental. We are also the least likely to seek professional help and so we suffer in silence. We are more prone to not broaching the subject of Mental and physical health within our community and social circles, due to the lack of education and awareness on the subjects; coupled with the fear of speaking with professionals who often times lack the sensitivity and understanding of our cultural and psychological needs.

13:35– The Hidden Gem – Health and Wellness
Speakers: Neusa Catoja, Charlotte Crowl
We have heard the saying that “your health is your wealth” and yet women in the Black and Ethnic communities have gradually suffered from failing health over the years and generations. How can we as women; whether young, middle aged, mature or elderly take back our ultimate wealth and the beauty of it within our own bodies? We often fill the position of pillar of support within the family, friendship circles as well as within our community, so if the pillars are weak, the foundations will never stand when its needed the most.

14:30 – Black Youth and the Education Sector
Speaker: Cheryl Phoenix, Angela Barrows
For many women, as natural nurturers our lives tend to revolve around our children. There is a lot of publicity surrounding black youth and violence, yet our children typically start off as high achievers academically, then gradually falling to the wayside.
What are our children up against in school and how can their identity and mental health be affectedwithin the education sector?How can we work to bridge the gap between the youth and the rest in our community?
What options are out there in the UK and how can we support, be aware and understand our youth that much more.
