Unfiltered is about standing uncompromisingly in the power of our voice.

Centering our truths. Speaking up about what Indigenous, Black, and racialized women really need to feel seen, heard, and valued in workplaces so we can thrive. It’s about boldly calling in leaders to collaborate with us to create meaningful change. Our voices hold a power that is stronger than any attempt to silence, censor or erase us. We are no longer minimizing our truths — we are unstoppable, unapologetic, and unfiltered.

Here's some love from our past Virtual Summit attendees

“AHF’s 2022 Virtual Summit was a much-needed grounding touch point that every Black, Indigenous and woman of colour needs during the year, to stay balanced and whole. The ability to learn from phenomenal women who share their experiences with vulnerability, authenticity, and candor was enriching. Also, the facilitated networking provided a platform for women to connect with each other in a mutually uplifting environment. You cannot afford to miss the next one!”

“One of the best aspects of the AHF Virtual Summit 2022 was the genuine sense of connection and safety it provided. The summit showcased an impressive lineup of powerful Black, Indigenous, and women of colour who shared their insights and wisdom, connecting with me on a level that spoke directly to my own experiences. Listening to their stories and journeys, I realized there are countless possibilities for our careers when we invest in ourselves and embrace community.”
