A Matriiarch removes harmful social and cultural barriers and creates access for communities of color
WHAT WE DO Maintaining operational mobility for communities of color is essential to maintain equity in Public Policy. We intentionally engage Black women in the diaspora from under represented communities to lead and invest in decision making processes of outreach and policy. Matriiarch provides a wealth of resources, community and platforms meant to serve as investments that will enhance your leadership and ability to lead thriving equitable communities. Matriiarch invites like-minded communities from around the world as the designers trainers of broad-minded thinking that will bring vital solutions to equity movements.
WHY TWO "I's"?
Matriiarch ( Maytreearch) is a play on the word Matriarch. Bridging Equity to Public Policy is a pillar of our mission and our strategies are always two-fold: Deconstructing and Rebuilding, Removal and Creation, Reclaiming and Reimagining.
