This is not about hair: empowering BAME women through enterprise

This is not about hair: empowering BAME women through enterprise

WEP Southwark are holding a panel discussion and Q&A at Peckham Palms on 19 February.

Panellists include:

  • Alae Ismail - Alae is committed to innovating brands and businesses with a passion for Africa. Between 2012-2017, she ran an online store called 'Styled by Africa', bringing together contemporary Made in Africa fashion and celebrating African culture and diversity. Alae has now joined Imperial College London - Enterprise Lab as Innovation and Entrepreneurship Manager, running programmes to support women led founders to build their entrepreneurial and leadership skills.

 

  • Reya El-Salahi - our host - Reya is an award-winning British news and current affairs presenter, reporter and journalist working in TV, radio, digital media and live events. As a professionally trained broadcast journalist Reya’s diverse career has ranged from travelling internationally to conflict zones as a documentary filmmaker for the BBC, to contributing to one of the world’s most listened to current affairs radio shows and podcasts This American Life.

 

  • Korina Holmes - Korina was born in Chester to an exuberant, Windrush generation Barbadian father and a softly spoken, idealistic (Northern) British mother. When she moved to Brixton after university, she experienced a unique, vibrantly diverse area that reflected what she valued most from her multicultural upbringing. Korina is a Women's Equality Party candidate, Windrush Action volunteer, Ted X speaker, retail lawyer, single parent and above all, intersectional feminist.

 

  • Zina Alfa - Zina is an award-winning producer and founder of the mobile app UnBeweaveable Hair. She created the app because she was unhappy with not only the asymmetric information regarding afro hair but terrible experiences many black people had whilst in salons and for those who were disabled, no home service at all. Her interests involve race-related issues, inequality, and discrimination. After facing hair discrimination herself and seeing our society use hair as another form of oppression, she started the petition to end Hair discrimination in the U.K. which has now attracted over 75k signatures.

Brew Society in Leeds, United Kingdom

Leeds Culture Club

WE are hosting the next in our series of 'Culture Club', a feminist night out with books and films! 

WE meet in a central Leeds location, in a wheelchair accessible venue, to discuss titles selected by YOU.
It's a great opportunity to meet other people who love books and film in an informal setting and
to have a good time over craft beers or whatever you fancy.

Our next book is Toni Morrison's BelovedIt's inspired by the life of Margaret Garner, an African American who escaped slavery in Kentucky in 1856 by crossing the Ohio River into Ohio, a free state. When captured, she killed her child rather than have her taken back into slavery.

We'll also be discussing the film On the Basis of Sexstarting Felicity Jones, in a watchable drama about the personal struggle against injustice and prejudice of real-life US supreme court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 
The movie is available on DVD or Amazon Prime to stream. 

WE look forward to welcoming you, whether or not you've had time to read the book or watch the film.

Lambeth Canvas Training Workshop

Are you Canvass Curious?

Between now and the London elections on the 7th May we'll be out talking to voters on the doorstep (aka canvassing).

If you'd like to to get involved but would like some canvassing skills to get you started this is the workshop for you!

 

We'll start off with an introduction to our London election campaign, as well as some activities to help you have great conversations with voters.  You'll also get to meet Korina, our fabulous candidate for Lambeth and Southwark.

Then we'll be trying out our new found skills for real in the local area - you'll be paired with an experience canvasser to practice with.

If you're wary, scared, cautious, not keen, apprehensive, or just don't think you can do it COME ALONG ANYWAY!! We were all nervous the first time we went, but we've found it's really fun, and WE get a great reception on the doorstep.

Every area WE have canvassed WE have increased our vote, and that's because when people hear about our policies face to face they want to vote for us! 

With your help we can get our first London Assembly Member elected.
