Odihi is a Black-led not-for-profit dedicated to educating, equipping, and empowering young Black girls and women
through coaching, workshops, and mentorships.
OUR FOUNDING STORY
Odihi was birthed out of the struggles and pain of Black women who have had to fight, crawl, and work hard to get to where they are now. The lack of Black women in positions of leadership is a gap and narrative Odihi wants to change. By nurturing the talents of Black girls and women, Odihi strives to ensure they can attain their full potential and walk in their greatness.
A recent NACE study highlighted disparities between the opportunities granted to white and Black college students. White students primarily filled paid internship positions while their Black counterparts primarily occupied positions that were unpaid. This study is an example of the barriers faced by Black individuals and their underrepresentation in higher-level positions.
Odihi is the bridge and a vital missing piece in a puzzle for racial equity, that will help connect a picture, realize a dream, and create opportunities for other Black girls and women to THRIVE.
