About Empow(HER)

This group, catered to young racialized women aged 16-24, aims to explore concepts relevant to the communities of these young women through open discussions and fun activities. The program is intended to provide a safe space for these women to feel supported, validated, and thusly, as the group name suggests: empowered! Through this group, we hope to increase the inner resilience and strengths of the young women in our communities.

This group will cover:

  • Healthy relationships, boundaries, consent
  • Intersectionality, intergenerational trauma, role of culture in identity formation
  • Self-care strategies, physical wellness etc.


WHIWH provides primary health care to racialized women from the Caribbean, African, Latin American and South Asian communities in metropolitan Toronto and surrounding municipalities. They are committed to working from an inclusive, feminist, pro-choice, anti-racist, anti-oppression and multilingual participatory framework in addressing the issue of access to healthcare for WHIWH’s mandated priority populations encompassing all the determinants of health caused by gender, gender identity, race, class, violence, sexual orientation, religion, culture, language, disability, immigration status, and socio-economic circumstances.
