Black voices in the wellness space: A directory

Updated: Jun 13, 2020

Follow, learn, support and share.

We all have a responsibility to make sure that the real estate we occupy in this world, be it physical or virtual, contributes to the greater good. We stand for the Black Lives Matter movement and will be dedicating this space, no matter how small it is, towards amplifying Black voices in our industry. These are the people and organisations we've been following and learning from, and whose work must be shouted from rooftops across the planet. We hope you will join us in ensuring that this movement, active and wide-reaching today, remains active and wide-reaching tomorrow.
