GAACC April Women's Club Meeting

GAACC April Women's Club Meeting

Thursday, April 11, 2024 (11:30 AM - 1:00 PM) (CDT)


Finding Your Voice as a Person of Color

For a person of color, finding your authentic voice can be difficult in a society that often tells us to be something other than ourselves. In this presentation, we take a look at racial trauma and the effect that it has on our physical and mental well-being. We also discuss how to start healing from that trauma, unlearn harmful mindsets, and use our authentic voices to advocate for ourselves and our communities.

About the Presenters

A Better Force is an equity-focused consulting and leadership development company. Sarah and Saamiya empower individuals and companies through our customized training programs, with an emphasis on well-being, equity and step-by-step actionable solutions. The main goal of Sarah and Saamiya's work is to create more inclusive spaces for women, BIPOC, and other underrepresented groups by tackling systematic inequalities in organizations.

Restaurant Spotlight

We are excited for GAACC Women's Club to return to Simar Seafood and Steak! Simar is Austin's only authentic Coastal Mexican seafood restaurant. They specialize in raw seafood delicacies like Fresh Oysters on a half shell, Shrimp Aguachiles and a variety of Ceviche. Offering a fresh and family friendly atmosphere with amazing patio seating.

About the GAACC Women's Club

The GAACC Women's Club is a dynamic group of leaders who grow and learn from each other. The Club meets on the second Thursday of every other month for an hour and a half to eat amazing food from one of our community restaurant members, enjoy a presentation that is inspiring, educational, and fun on a rotational topic of choice, and network with each other to strengthen our relationships. The GAACC Women's Club is led by our 2024 GAACC Women's Club Captain, Aileen Yu.
