The collective creates and offers programming and content rooted in the mind-body connection and work-related research. Their programming aims to thwart institutional narratives and socialization tactics which encourage working for worthiness. It is their belief and experience that such narratives and tactics too often present further harm and reify trauma, especially for people of African descent. The collective is first focused on doing this work in the context of academia and non-profit settings, and they hope to one day effectuate shifts in how people of African descent relate to their work in allindustries.   This program is open to BIPOC and allies who have past experience as an undergraduate, graduate student, staff, faculty member, etc.
