On May 16, 2017, during the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), AWDF USA organized with Moremi Initiative and Women Change Africa to hold a small and informal event called WoMentoring. WoMentoring began with the intention to create intentional, safe and sacred spaces for intimate conversations to happen on an intergenerational level. Within our feminist spaces, we need women mentoring each other to nurture authentic listening, genuine relationships and real solidarity. In 2018, this event evolved to the form it will take moving forward, the Afri-Women hangout, an intergenerational mentoring and networking space where AWDF USA Board Members facilitated conversations about navigating personal and professional challenges while being a woman of color.”
