Be Well, Sis is a wellness eco-system that empowers Black women with resources for healing mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Through our award-winning podcast, interactive community, and engaging event series, we're on a mission to make wellness more colorful and inclusive.
Across the board, Black women suffer the worst medical outcomes and score the lowest in well-being assessments. While Western medicine has positives, modern healthcare often falls short when addressing the needs of our community. In particular, the interconnectedness of our physical health/wellness and our mental wellbeing is often neglected or minimized. In addition, many wellness spaces cater to affluent, white women leaving out a large segment of the population who are in need of services, community, and culturally competent education. Lastly, true health and wellness cannot exist without community.
WHO ARE WE?
Be Well, Sis was created out of my own need for inviting wellness spaces that spoke to my experiences as a Black woman in America. In addition to the trauma that are a result of racism, classism, colorism, and the like, Black women also endure challenges that are part of the universal human experience , i.e. loss, disappointment, illness, and self-doubt. In my search for resources and community that addressed these needs, I was met with a shallow, commodified industry peddled by people with toxic ideals and little to no expertise.
Since its 2020 launch, Be Well, Sis has amassed an engaged, listening, and quickly growing community. We've recently hit a milestone of surpassing 200 thousand unique downloads and serve a global listenership of diverse women and femmes.
Be Well, Sis exists to serve the millions of forgotten women who are actively seeking no-fuss wellness solutions for themselves and their families.
Our community deserves more.
TRANSFORMATION REQUIRES CAPITAL
Be Well, Sis is among many minority woman owned businesses challenged with raising capital in a less than ideal environment.
