Awakening Women Cafés

Studio Image

Using the World Café format we gather a diverse group of women, facilitate conversations that matter, and harvest the groups’ resulting collective wisdom. Through this collective creativity format, participants connect with one another in meaningful ways, and add their voices to those of women worldwide. Joining together to act on behalf of a world that can work for all, the café participants acknowledge their willingness to discover ways to become stewards of women’s collective future, and that of the planet.

Co-collaborators with Sheila K. Collins in this endeavor are Vikki Hanchin and LaVerne Baker Hotep.  To register for the next café go to
