Changing The Colour Of The Boardroom

Top leadership positions have an inherent lack of colour, especially among Black & Brown women.


At Odihi, we envision a “New World” with an equitable representation of Black and Brown women in leadership positions across all industries.

Kwomais is our boardroom and leadership program for youths under 35 to learn how to be better prepared for board and leadership opportunities. Through Kwomais Boardroom initiative, we aim to address the lack of colour in boardrooms by enhancing the skill set of participants through rigorous leadership and board governance training, seminars, events, and mental health workshops. 

This program is geared toward Black and Brown women youth/young adults under 30 with aspirations to work in high-level business positions. Specifically tailored to equip participants with the tools for success, this program will take your career blueprint to the next level. Preparation now ensures you are ready to level up when an opportunity presents itself. 

Odihi is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with Industry Leaders to deliver world-class leadership training in various career fields. This acceleration program will help Black and Brown women develop valuable leadership skills, spur professional growth, and successfully make impactful connections to land leadership roles. We provide access to the people, resources, and opportunities that will help ensure your success. 

Research makes it increasingly clear that companies with Black and Brown women in key leadership positions perform better financially. WOC have proven and earned their seats at the table; now it’s time to educate, equip and empower them to fill them!
