NEW YORK, June 13, 2022 - THE COLORED GIRL, a global community of 82,000 Black, Latinx, Indigenous & Asian womxn (BIWOC) on a mission to uplift, unite, and empower womxn of color; today unveiled additional details for The IMARA Retreat 2022 and announced: "IMARA ENCORE'' providing both exclusive in-person attendance at the Africa Retreat as well as a dynamic virtual offering, with an exciting schedule of speakers, experiences and performances. With 2 days of content airing from September 16-17th, the hybrid event will encompass the richness of the IMARA Retreat.

The 4th annual IMARA Retreat will kick off July 17th with a week dedicated to elevating the mindsets of women of color from all across the globe, putting their intentions into practice, and moving towards a life of generosity and abundance. Following last year's theme, "The Shift" THE COLORED GIRL is proud to announce this year's theme: "This year's theme: "ABUNDANCE" within each womxn lies everything she needs. An overflow of wealth to guide and fuel her as she moves throughout the world and brings her vision to life. To do this, she must be clear. She must move with intention and be on purpose. She must have an ABUNDANCE mindset. 

We are also excited to announce that the IMARA Retreat is presented by Amazon and will be held for the first time in TWO LOCATIONS; the beautiful vibrant city of Nairobi, Kenya, and the gorgeous pristine seaside location of Zanzibar, Tanzania. 

"We are filled with gratitude for Amazon, our presenting sponsor and trusted TCG partner, for supporting our vision for IMARA. Much like our retreat, this partnership goes beyond talk and towards action, immersing the IMARA community through thought leadership, a commitment to supporting African designers, and giving back in Zanzibar with a day filled with service & generosity at a local village school. To live on a higher frequency, you have to align at a higher frequency – and through this partnership, we can ground proudly in that principle – embodying the spirit of expansive thinking, transformative experiences, and actualizing your most abundant reality," said Rachelle Daglis, Co-Founder of THE COLORED GIRL.

“We are excited to collaborate with THE COLORED GIRL to support the ongoing personal and professional advancement of women,” said Modupe’ R. Congleton, Worldwide Consumer Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Amazon. “At Amazon, we are committed to the empowerment, safety, and growth of women of color. I am proud to lead a broad strategy filled with intentional actions, such as targeted partnerships and community activations, like IMARA, to invest in the indelible impact women of color bring to business and the world at large.”

The IMARA programming was beautifully curated by THE COLORED GIRL Founder Tori Elizabeth with immersive & emotive experiences for the womxn to step into their truth and access their most abundant life.

"We believe in personal indulgence for the collective good. By replenishing your own cup, you are able to practice more compassion and generosity towards others. We encourage attendees to reclaim their time, energy, and boundaries to feel intimately connected to themselves, their needs, and their desires to ultimately form positive relationships, create more impact and live Abundantly. I could not be more excited to take this journey with my sisters" said Founder Tori Elizabeth.
