Island Girls Rock is our non-profit initiative celebrating women of Caribbean heritage and is dedicated to supporting and showcasing Caribbean culture through fostering cultural connections and championing collaborative opportunities between women of the Caribbean and its Diaspora.
Living the ethos that ‘one hand can’t clap’…
Our mission is simple, and that is to encourage Caribbean women to share their stories and experiences in spaces created expressively for them whilst nurturing and encouraging pride in their unique talents and perspectives. Committed to the growth and empowerment of women across the Caribbean, Island Girls Rock, aims to build a global platform to facilitate diasporic collaborations, build networks and provide mentorship and inspiration through immersive events , workshops and meet-ups.
