Sisterhood Agenda Virtual Programs

Sisterhood Agenda introduces virtual trauma-informed (TI) support services to fulfill its mission to educate, support, and empower women and girls around the globe.

"A significant positive relation emerges between optimism and coping strategies focused on social support and emphasis on positive aspects of stressful situations."

Sisterhood Agenda’s objectives are to:

  • Create opportunities meaningful emotional connections
  • Avoid social isolation
  • Make new connections
  • Global girls programming
  • Holistic health agenda

WHO?   Women and girls, small groups of 10 or less, global sisterhood network and agency constituents

WHAT? Online opportunities to connect and engage

WHEN? As soon as possible

WHERE? Everywhere, online, different time zones, regularly-scheduled times and days weekly

HOW? Video conferencing, social media, other virtual platforms

SHE: Sisters, Healthy & Empowered is just one of Sisterhood Agenda’s new virtual projects. We are also examining ways to implement our other unique programs, such as SisterCamp, A Journey Toward Womanhood, and Sister Circles.  

This week, three team members will be trained as Sisterhood Advisors.  Importantly, after the training, they will be certified to provide mentoring, counseling, consulting, and teaching services through one-on-one via video conferencing and as part of our global girl empowerment programs.

Toward this goal, we hired a Media Specialist who has a strong understanding of multi-media business needs and experience in various promotional marketing strategies, particularly online platforms such as social media, video, and blogging.

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Researching appropriate media opportunities for Sisterhood Agenda to pursue
  • Creating new content for our digital platforms and products
  • Be a driving force behind our research-driven digital development
  • Bringing extensive experiences and skills, along with your creative ideas
  • Analyzing user data, conduct usability tests, and transfer outcomes to concrete media implementations
  • Closely collaborating with members of our team and various stakeholders to create the best media experience for constituents

Our goal is to increase brand awareness and for our targeted population of women and girls to have easy access to Sisterhood Agenda projects, products, and services. We have the vision to make the power of our global sisterhood available via cell phone, computer, and in-person throughout the world.

If you share our passion for educating, supporting, and empowering women and in girls for the future, we are happy to have you support our work!

Using Tech to Make a Difference with Girls

The coronavirus international pandemic makes it unsafe to travel. As a result, our Sisterhood Agenda team is investing more heavily in a virtual infrastructure that is easily accessible to our program participants.

Our goal is to maximize tech platforms that embrace the feeling and depth of in-person services.

At this current time, we are all being challenged to create more exciting, intentional, and effective virtual spaces that educate, support, and empower women and girls.

Can tech foster sisterhood bonds? Yes!

Can tech teach? Of course!

Can tech mentor? Sure!

Can tech heal? We hope so!

Our SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy is poised to accept this challenge.

Join us in our Global Girls Empowerment journey as we tap into what we know can be beneficial new virtual services for women and girls.

Of course, your support and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

In the Spirit of Sisterhood,

ACE Survey Collection Going Strong

To date, Sisterhood Agenda has collected over 10,000 ACE survey results. This is an outstanding amount of data that will inform our knowledge about ACES, women and girls. This knowledge will, in turn, inform our programs and new initiatives, particularly our SHE:  Sisters, Healthy & Empowered project.

ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) are traumatic experiences (for example, sexual abuse and domestic violence) that one has experienced before adulthood.  ACEs have a profound impact on self-development and womanhood.  When compared to boys, girls disproportionately experience multiple ACEs-they have more ACEs, more often and at earlier ages.

Sisterhood Agenda published many articles on sisterhoodagnda.com and also published a video on how to get your ACE score and what it means. The articles and video about ACEs are Sisterhood Agenda’s most viewed, demonstrating a keen interest in self-knowledge and self-awareness when it comes to childhood trauma.

Perhaps more importantly than the data collection itself, Sisterhood Agenda also published the book, Life After ACEs: Overcoming Girlhood Trauma as a solution for high ACE scores. 

As impactful as ACEs can be, ACEs are not destiny.

Sisterhood Agenda’s trauma-informed programs, training, and consulting, along with its most recent publication, Life After ACEs, shows readers how to focus on overcoming their traumatic past to live a life that is full of present positivity, meaningful connections, love, and purpose.

We are still collecting ACE surveys. You can take the survey on Sisterhood Agenda’s site where we explore how ACEs may be putting you at risk: https://sisterhoodagenda.com/are-aces-putting-you-at-risk/.

Thank you for supporting this worthwhile cause.  We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing our mission to educate, support, and empower women and girls around the globe.  

In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
Angela D. Coleman
Founder & President
