THE DIVA PROJECT specifically encourages and supports women of color, to no longer sit on the sidelines as if disempowered; it is meant to educate us on how powerful we are through demonstrative action.
As a whole, women have been absent from the table. Yet as women we have an innate ability to multi-task; we have a tendency to solve issues from the heart; we’re more humanely connected.
We’re not stereotyping, or presuming all women are the same or possess these traits to the same degree, but when it comes to dialog addressing concerns that impact families, children, and life, we believe women have the potential to be more engaged, and more compassionate.
We believe -no matter the sexual orientation- this is innate because women bring life into the world, and out of that mothering, nurturing aspect of being female, women care about children, home, family, education, and by extension, the overall health and well-being of society as a whole.
