Retreat Vision Statement:

To build a community for Women of Color where there is freedom from fear to be yourself, to express your mind, multiple intelligences and identities through discovering leadership. A place to empower, find meaning, healing, love, and trust in ourselves and each other. To help you see the leader within and give voice to the inner and outer depths of yourself, in order to shift the paradigm of leaders today and tomorrow. To bring light to those unsung leaders in our lives, all women of distinction.

The theme this fall: Unearthing Leadership: Redefining the Masks We Wear

We will delve deeper into what this means and who you are as a woman of color as well as who you would like to become. It is a term that is derived from the Haitian culture to describe powerful local women that drive the global economy as well as the center of the community.
