We want Black women to gain insight from Black women who are trailblazers in their respective industries whilst also providing support in the job recruitment process. We have hosted a virtual series featuring Black women in different creative fields, branding and marketing workshops, and resume and cover letter strategy workshops. This work highlights the experiences of Black women in different careers, offering practical solutions on building a business and landing a dream job
There is substantial evidence to show that Black women face major disparities when it comes to mental health care. To help bridge this gap, we host easily digestible, culturally-relevant workshops to help reduce the stigma of mental health in the Black community, and for participants to have a better understanding of mental health conditions. We also share freely available resources with our community and curate bitesize mental health content on our Instagram page.
FINANCIAL PLANNING & LITERACY
Our Financial Planning and Literacy workshops enable students and young professionals to learn how to make a budget, save money and increase their credit score. The workshops explore topics such as how to make an active income passive, how to build up your credit score, tips and tricks on saving, advice on buying property and how first home buyers get funding and save for down payment.
Our sex education workshops serve as a shame-free and inclusive environment for Black women to expand their knowledge on sex and vaginal health, whilst building a community.
HBG annually hosts a sexual health education series that consists of three workshops. The first workshop informs participants on sexual and reproductive health. The second workshop will discuss sexual pleasure and intimacy which gives Black women an opportunity to discuss their personal opinions, knowledge and gain awareness on the topic. The third workshop demystifies and raises awareness on the need for consent education.
