A Celebration of Black Womanhood with Catherine Joy White

Wednesday 9th August

Catherine Joy White will take us on a unique journey through the eyes of positive and inspiring disruptors.


Throughout history, acts of defiance have taken place in secret, in kitchens, churches, through trusted networks. Others were projected onto a global stage through art, politics and activism. From Alice Walker to Beyoncé, from Audre Lorde to Doreen Lawrence, from Aretha Franklin to Zendaya: Catherine Joy White will join us to discuss her own journey to self-discovery through the prism of extraordinary women and in the process create a beautiful tapestry of Black joy.

As gender advisor to the United Nations, Catherine is working on gender equality on a global scale. Catherine is the founder and CEO of award-winning Kusini Productions, a company established to create opportunities, change the narrative and champion voices of Black women and girls. Catherine was also recently listed in the Forbes 30 under 30 Class of 2022.
