ODIHI'S AIM IS TO SUPPORT THE
Advancing Careers Of BIPOC Women And Girls
Our goal is to provide free access to educational resources and create endless career opportunities for BIPOC women and girls locally and globally.
Odihi is seeking to change the narrative for Black and Brown women.
A recent study from Business Insider shows that out of all the CEOs in Fortune 500 companies, 37 are female, but only 2 are Black females.
This startling statistic is our drive at Odihi as we work to address the lack of colour in top-level business positions to change the narrative for Black and Brown women worldwide.
Through partnerships, our community of women will connect with industry experts, organizations, and companies that offer leadership training and mentorships to these women. From there, our mentors can relay their knowledge and hands-on experiences to help each woman establish a career path that aligns with their goals.
To equip BIPOC women and girls with the tools to become confident and self-motivated innovators and change-makers. At Odihi, that looks like:
Provide BIPOC women and girls with educational resources, mental health support, and the guidance they need to succeed in life.
Working together on the shared blueprint of the UN 17 Sustainability Development Goal, especially with goals 3, 4, 5, and 8).
Capacity building through our workshops, mentorships, and community programs.
Employing students for summer jobs and securing apprenticeships and work placements to ensure Black and Brown women and girls can gain experience and insight into their field of interest.
Helping BIPOC women and girls to build their network and connect them to various working environments that will help enhance their mindset, growth, self-belief, and more.
