The Anna Faith Jones & Frieda Garcia
Women of Color Leadership Circle

"Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women."
- Maya Angelou

We are happy to announce the launch of the Anna Faith Jones & Frieda Garcia Women of Color Leadership Circle, facilitated by Kelly Bates, President, and Aba Taylor, Racial Equity & Training Practice Lead of Interaction Institute for Social Change (IISC). This program, designed by a team of women of color leaders, is inspired by the friendship, vision and close partnership of two groundbreaking women of color leaders: Anna Faith Jones and Frieda Garcia, the former President/CEO and Board Chair, respectively, of the Boston Foundation

The Women of Color Leadership Circle is a six-month cohort program that honors the leadership, strength and resilience of women of color who do incredible work within their communities, and provide them with a cherished space to share challenges and opportunities. We envision the Women of Color Leadership Circle as a safe space for belonging, fellowship, learning, unlearning, self-care and restoration, where participants can share their challenges and frustrations and learn and grow from one another's experiences. 

Program Offerings

  • Six monthly day-long sessions for women of color to develop professionally 
  • Nine hours of executive coaching for each participant
