ALEXIS P. MORGAN
Alexis P. Morgan is the pole-dancing, troublemaking, pro-heaux, Black AF sorceress you've been warned about. As an anticapitalist commerce babe, she occupies her time and makes her cheddar as a writer, artist, consultant, and professional opinion-giver.
Devoted to Truth, Justice, and Liberation, she lives in the spirit of her foremothers: Unbossed. Unbought. Unbothered.
Andréa Ranae is a coach, writer and facilitator who seeks to offer and uplift practical tools, resources and wisdom in support of each of us recognizing, owning and sharing our power so that we can amplify the impact we have in our communities. She is deeply committed to doing her part in cultivating a world that works for everyone and does so by exploring the intersections of our individual and collective healing, growth and liberation through her work. With a water bottle at her side at all times and Beyoncé, usually playing in the background, Andréa believes that together, we rise and she hopes to create spaces which allow for that to happen.
Layla Saad is a writer and speaker, whose work focuses on centering the stories, art and magic of people of colour.
As the founder of Wild Mystic Woman, Layla's work explores the intersecting themes of spirituality, social justice, creativity, feminism, business and leadership.
As an East African, Arab, British, Muslim, feminist, soul seeker, living in the Middle East (Qatar), and sharing her work with the global community, Layla stands at a diverse intersection of identities, from which she is able to draw rich and intriguing perspectives. Layla’s own personal journey as a black Muslim woman, her work with her clients and her writings often confront the oppressive cultures of patriarchy and white supremacy.
