MEET Indigenous Entrepreneur Carrie Okemaw
“Carrie has deep love for her ancestors and the Matriarchs in her life and this loving energy is embedded in all her designs.“ - Vanessa Lesperance, LIFT Circle Lead
The LIFTing Your Leadership program is a cohort experience for 12 Indigenous women and non-binary entrepreneurs, and is a combination of leadership and business development activities (created by LIFT) and story amplification (by PowHERhouse). The project is rooted in decolonized leadership development and steeped in Indigenous ways of knowing and being. This project has been made possible with support from The Indigenous People’s Resilience Fund which is built upon the resiliency of, and guided by, Indigenous Peoples to support Indigenous communities.
