Who is a trailblazer?

Every week, we spotlight a trailblazing woman of colour founder or community leader.

These women are established in their field and use their platform, products and voice to empower others.

Every trailblazer experiences challenges and highlights on their journey and we are here to share that with you.

Our newsletters are here to inform and inspire you about the cool shit that women of colour are doing, and to empower you to blaze your own trail.
