Frequently Asked Questions

Am I able to participate in/attend your events if I am not a black woman ?

Of course!

Whilst we are very clear on our mission to promote the voices and stories of black women, we also believe in collaborating and working with people outside of our community.  Our core organisational values lie within the area of membership where every woman we see feels welcome, included and supported. Our inclusion policy and  code of conduct have more information on this.

 

What are the benefits of attending these events?

There a multiple benefits:

  • Networking and socialising with other women from all walks of life.

  •  Learning, sharing discussing real life & relevant topics in an interactive and non-judgmental space.

  • Opportunities to volunteer, and share your own story.

  • Great vibe, and always takes place in beautiful & unique venues.

  • Refreshments and valuable freebies included in the ticket price.

  • Resources and Information to take away with you after each event.

Do you have to pay to attend these events?

Yes, as a grassroots non-profit  community organisation, at the moment we rely on public funding to be able to run our events and services , and hope to continue delivering more events in the future, therefore the price you pay for these events helps us to allocate these funds to certain activities at each event as well as future events. Our ticket fee price is reasonable and the refreshments, resources and freebies are all included in this ticket price - well worth it! 

Where possible, we also try and allocate free tickets to delegates who are less fortunate and are unable to pay to attend. These types of tickets are limited and are allocated on a case by case basis. Please contact us directly for more information about this.

Do your events and activities only take place in London?

At the moment, as we are launching this as a pilot project, and so our funding is restricted to London, this doesn't mean you cannot attend if you don't reside in the London area, you just need to be aware of the additional cost to travel to London. We do hope to continue our work on a greater scale within the UK. Subscribe to our mailing lists for regular updates about our developments and future events.
