Teakisi Woman Talk 2021

Saturday, 16 October, 2021 - 14:30 to 17:00
The Common Room, Westgate Road, Newcastle, NE1 1SE

Join Teakisi for its annual session for Black History Month focussing on African women and the community.

The third annual Teakisi Women Talk Conference takes place in October, which is also Black History Month. The annual Teakisi Woman Talk allows black women, plus the general public to have a conversation on topics that really matter - however uncomfortable they may be.

This year’s topic is Community and Connectivity: Bridging the digital divide. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us how important technology is in our daily lives, and most people take digital for granted. But for many families in the African and minoritized communities, technology is not as readily available, which has made the last 12 months especially difficult.

The Teakisi Woman Talk conference is key event for those interested in enhancing the capabilities and leadership opportunities for African women, Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority colleagues across all sectors. The event aims to:

  • Empower through informative speeches, talks, spoken word, drama, conversations and networking
  • Celebrate the culture and heritage of Africa, minority communities, and people of African descent
  • Learn from each other while sharing life experiences

This event is for:

  • Individuals and organisations who champion tackling inequalities
  • Organisations that rely on digital literacy including health and social care
  • Education
  • those who embrace the digital sphere as a means to connect and make a living (bloggers, social media, etc)
