Community can't wait!
Times are tough and we need community more than ever! Kiki & Co-Work DC is an indoor and outdoor co-working experience centering and celebrating Black, Indigenous, and women and femmes of color (BIWOC), happening Wednesday, September 29th!
Ìpàdé is a DC-based co-working space and community of support for women of color entrepreneurs, changemakers, professionals, and creatives. At Ìpàdé, we come together to grow personally and professionally and build power for positive impact.
On September 29th, we're bringing you one exciting day of stellar networking, wellness and branding workshops, and good vibes with Black women and femmes of color who are making big moves! At Kiki & Co-Work DC you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Meet new people and network with bold and inspiring BIPOC women and femmes
- Gain new connections, clients, and partnerships
- Learn about brand strategy from the experts at Brllnt creative studio
- Hear from expert Afua Osei about corporate partnerships strategy
- Get zen with certified yoga and meditation instructor, Amanda L. Paul
- Get some work done in an inspiring and supportive environment
At Kiki & Co-Work DC, you’ll find indoor and outdoor co-working and networking space and amenities like coffee, tea, water, and snacks to keep you fueled.
You don’t have to work from home or work alone. We got you!
Our community members are entrepreneurs, side hustlers, non-profit leaders, activists, philanthropists, and creatives across industries and sectors. What unites us is a passion for making social impact for Black and Brown people and a drive to do and be our best. We know this happens in and through community.
Together, we’ve learned how to move from idea to impact, organized our lives to have more time for the things we care about, made self-care and self-love a priority, and built skills through professional development to create change. We’ve co-worked virtually and connected each other to valuable resources we need to be successful. And we’ve inspired each other through honest, authentic storytelling and conversation.
Community is critical during these times! That's why we're coming together as safely as possible (masks are required, vaccines strongly suggested). If you're looking for a place to connect with like-minded individuals and thrive with the support of Black women and femmes of color, join us!
