We are happy to announce we are recruiting for the 2022 Anna Faith Jones & Frieda Garcia Women of Color Leadership Circle in partnership with the Boston Women's Fund! This program, designed by a team of women of color leaders, is inspired by the friendship, vision and close partnership of two groundbreaking women of color leaders: Anna Faith Jones and Frieda Garcia, the former President/CEO and Board Chair of the Boston Foundation. 

The Women of Color Leadership Circle is a six-month cohort program facilitated the Interaction Institute for Social Change. It honors the leadership, strength, and resilience of women of color who do incredible work within their communities and provides them with a cherished space to share challenges and opportunities. We envision the Women of Color Leadership Circle as a safe space for belonging, fellowship, learning, unlearning, self-care, and restoration, where participants can share their challenges and frustrations and learn and grow from each other’s experiences.
